Get Involved in Evanston's 1st Annual Flying Turkey 5K Walk/Run!

As local Evanston Real Estate agents, the Thomas Team, we love what we do!  We enjoy helping people navigate through the Evanston Real Estate market whether they are buying or selling a home and always strive to ensure each process runs smoothly and efficiently. 
However, we also truly appreciate the city of Evanston and being able to call this charming city “home.”  It’s here that we have planted our roots and because we find it such a great place to live, we find it easy to let potential buyers in on this hidden gem of Chicago’s North Shore.  Being involved in our community is important to us as individuals and as a team, and each year we enjoy finding a way that we can give back to the city of Evanston.  
This year, we found a fantastic event that we are thrilled to support and wanted to tell you about it in hopes of getting as many people involved as possible!  It’s the 1st Annual Evanston Flying Turkey 5K Walk/Run taking place on Thursday, November 24 along the Evanston lakefront.
Starting at 9am, this walk/run will be a great way for families and friends to work up an appetite before their Thanksgiving feast!  Everyone is welcome to be a part of the Flying Turkey 5K whether you are in the race or want to cheer others on.  Volunteers are also needed to make this event run smoothly, and there are many ways to get involved.  
Those in the race will need to register and will receive a goodie bag for participating!  Water stations along the way will help keep athletes going and refreshments at the finish line will be a welcome treat.  Most importantly, the Flying Turkey 5K will support local Evanston charity, The Harvest.  This food bank has been helping many needy families for over 30 years and we have the chance to give back to their ongoing efforts!  Canned good donations will be collected prior to the race and will go directly to The Harvest Food Pantry
To learn more, or if you’d like to volunteer or register for the race, please visit the Evanston Flying Turkey 5K website!  Of course we’re more than thrilled to be a part of supporting this great event and hope that you’ll be able to get involved as well!  
As always, if you have any questions about living in Evanston, or are interested in seeing some of the beautiful homes available on the Evanston Real Estate market, please let us know!  
We’re here to help you discover Evanston and get connected to this vibrant community!
