"Your life and mine shall be valued not by what we take... but by what we give." Those words, spoken by Easterseals' founder Edgar Allen over 90 years ago, began a movement. Today, we're thankful to you for being a part of that movement. With over 50 million Americans living with disabilities, our work is far from complete. We encourage you to help us call attention to the experience of people with disabilities, and to raise awareness of and advocate for the services they need to live, learn, work and play in their communities.

The Original Chase Columbus Turkey Trot

Turkey Trot

The 2019 "Original" Chase Columbus Turkey Trot is scheduled for November 28th (THANKSGIVING DAY). Join us on Thanksgiving morning for an on-time start of 9am. This family tradition has been recognized by Runner's World Magazine as one of the nation's "Best Hometown Favorite" holiday runs. Last year over 7,500 runners and walkers joined the fun and each was rewarded with a fresh pumpkin pie. The Columbus Turkey Trot was the very first in Central Ohio way back in 1986 and continues to be the best and biggest all because of you!

The Chase Turkey Trot offers your choice of two distances including a 5-mile run and the more casual and family-friendly "Walk N' Talk. Kids can participate too! The Dick's Sporting Goods Tot Trot 100 yard dash is a huge hit for kids 9 and under.

Each participant will receive a great looking (long sleeve) dry-fit, three-quarter zip shirt, one of a kind finisher's medal, chip timing and goody bag items. Additionally, EVERY PARTICIPANT will take home a delicious pumpkin pie!

Run, Eat Pie, Give Thanks & Give Back!
