‘Give Cancer the Bird’ at the 6th Annual Soo Turkey Trot

The sixth annual Turkey Trot titled “Give Cancer the Bird” in Sault Ste. Marie is happening Thursday morning, to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

The 5-K race is open to all ages, and you can either run or walk. On-site sign-up starts at 7:30 a.m. at the Avery Square on Ashum Street, but you can sign up online before then. They even have a virtual option.

The race starts at 8:15 a.m., beginning downtown in the Soo at Avery Square.

“We encourage people to dress up in costume and have fun,” said Co-Event Coordinator, Mark Sanangelo. “We will actually have some turkeys here. So, people just come on out have a good time and it’s a great way to actually burn some calories before they decide to eat their Thanksgiving dinner.”

Medals and various awards will be given out during the event.
