Cheer on the participants for the 117th annual YMCA Turkey Trot
Trot gobblers are enthusiastic spectators who will cheer on the participants to help create an atmosphere of fun and excitement for all involved as they travel down Delaware Ave. on Thanksgiving morning. We invite all area community organizations, block clubs, local businesses, high school/college groups, athletic teams, cheerleading squads, families – you name it-to share their spirit at this year’s event as Trot Gobblers!
Trot Gobblers will be assigned to a pre-designated section of Delaware Ave. from 9:00 - 10:30 am on race day. Groups are strongly encouraged to bring pompoms, noisemakers, balloons, signs, and wear costumes to help enhance the overall Turkey Trot experience. Groups will be provided with a contact person in advance of the event who will be able to answer any questions, provide suggestions and assistance and keep you updated on event specifics as necessary.
In recognition of your support, Trot Gobbler groups will have name recognition on the YMCAs Web site as well as on the AV display at the post race party, will be recognized as a participating group by the emcee at the start line, and the teams captain and a guest will be invited to join us at the VIP party being held at the Buffalo Convention Center on November 22. Of course the biggest recognition you will receive will be by the 12,500 participants as they see your banners, signs, balloons, and enthusiasm you bring to your area on the race course.
For more information on having your group participate in this iconic event, please contact financial development director at 565-6000, ext. 107.
