2010 Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot
Run or Walk for Healthy, Hope, and a Home

Over 14,000 Silicon Valley residents and out-of-towners started Thanksgiving Day off on the right food at the Applied Materials ‘Silicon Valley Turkey Trot’. Raising over $425,000, this year’s annual race was amazing!

The community gave “thanks” by helping Santa Clara Family Health Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County as proceeds from the race benefit these three organizations. The three charities provide families with their most basic needs for “health, hope, and a home.” The Silicon Valley Turkey Trot, founded and produced by the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, concluded its sixth year and the total amount received by the three charities now exceeds $1.3 million.

There were several events to choose from in the 5K and 10K runs and walks, along with a kid’s fun run. Elite runners, joggers, and walkers enjoyed the downtown San Jose course, which was flat, fast, and flowed through neighborhoods and business areas.

Be sure to put next year’s event on your calendar! Join in next year’s fun and support Santa Clara Family Health Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County.
