Orange City Turkey Trot’s purpose is to mark the Thanksgiving Holiday with joyful community through a 5K fun run / walk.

While we offer a true 5K course and keep runner times, the emphasis is on a fun experience for all ages that will raise awareness and resources for mission.  The 2019 ministry partners are My Choice and Trinity Youth Missions.

The 2018 mission partners are Hunger Free Kids of Sioux County and Trinity Youth Missions. Founded with the goal of helping fund Sack Pack programs in Sioux County and hopes of growing to help assist food pantries through the country, Hunger Free Kids of Sioux County has made significant strides in helping our area community.  The race raised nearly $5000 to split between our two ministry partners.

The 2017 missions were Bethany Christian Services of Orange City and Trinity Youth Missions. Also in 2017, we partnered with local businesses as sponsors in the hopes to raise more funds for our mission partners.

The 2015 mission partner was ATLAS of Orange City. The race was cancelled the morning of due to ice, but nearly $1000 was raised that year.

In 2014, the Bride was the mission partner with 119 participants and over $1,500 was raised!

The 2013 focus was the Orange City Food Pantry.  Thanks to the 168 participants, $2,000 was raised to alleviate hunger in our community.
