Baton Rouge Turkey Trot

About

BATON ROUGE TURKEY TROT

NOVEMBER 23,2017

ABOUT THE EVENT
Celebrating its 31st year, the Turkey Trot returns to Downtown Baton Rouge on the morning of Thanksgiving 2017. This race is a local thanksgiving tradition – one that servers the community by keeping them active and fit through racing and partner with the March of Dimes as a fund-raiser to help their organization both financially and by spreading the word about the work they do.

Last year’s race was a tremendous success.  The race grew in numbers of participants and was again the largest registered field for March of Dimes in 30 years. We’d love to surpass that in 2017.   The team at FRESHJUNKIE Racing is committed to the continued growth and success of this Baton Rouge staple.  We are working hard to accommodate the growing numbers and make everyone’s Turkey Day a little more special.

ABOUT MARCH OF DIMES

Since 2003, The March Of Dimes fight to save babies has been strongly characterized by their Prematurity Campaign. The rising incidence of premature birth has demanded action, and The March of Dimes has responded by initiating an intensive, multi-year campaign to raise awareness and find the causes of prematurity.

The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screening, and to educate medical professionals and the public about best practices for healthy pregnancy. The March of Dimes has supported research for surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distress and helped initiate the system of regional neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies. Their recent Folic Acid Campaign achieved a dramatic reduction in the incidence of neural tube defects, birth defects of the brain and spine.
