Traditions are an important part of developing a sense of family, community, history and self. Traditions bring people together in celebration, support and unity. Traditions help reinforce values, create positive memories and set aside time for meaningful interactions with important and beloved people.

The mission and vision of the Mini-Cassia Turkey Trot embody the same principles and feelings as traditions. In year 14 of MCTT, we are proud to see the positive influence this very special tradition has had in our community. We see families and neighbors brought together year after year in the spirit of fun, good health and growth in the Mini-Cassia area.

If you have not yet made the Mini-Cassia Turkey Trot part of your Thanksgiving holiday tradition, sign up now. To those who have been trotting with us for years - welcome back! Whatever the weather, we think this joyful event will enhance your holiday traditions.
For registration and information visit www.minicassiaturkeytrot.com
The Mini-Cassia Turkey Trot is a Thanksgiving Day 5k designed to accommodate all fitness levels!
