Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot

November 22, 2018, 7:00 am - 10:00 am

$35 – $40

Gibbons and some of his friends volunteered as football coaches at Visitation Grade School in Elmhurst, IL. The group was reminiscing over their most recent season when the discussion of Chicago’s hunger issues came up. A fellow coach came up with the idea to start a 5K, as they were increasing in popularity, to raise money for the hungry.

Eventually it was settled upon, they would organize a 5K Turkey Trot to raise money for families in need and provide them with food for the holidays. Gibbons had the most time to put towards the event and so the event was dubbed the Dan Gibbons Turkey Trot.
