WELCOME TO THE KAREN P. NAKON BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION
13th ANNUAL TURKEY DASH
The Turkey Dash, a 5k run/walk is held each year on Thanksgiving morning at the Avon High School in Avon, Ohio. This family friendly event is a great way to show your gratitude for your own health, support a great cause, and work up an appetite for your own Thanksgiving feast.
Funds raised from the annual Turkey Dash go directly to women and their families in Northeast Ohio who are impacted by the finacial burden of the high cost of breast cancer treatments. Last year, over $30,000 was raised for the Foundation.
The race, held at the Avon High School and winding through the Highland Subdivision of Avon, features over 1400 runners and 250 spectators. Racers, their families, and friends enjoy pumpkin pie, hot cocoa and coffee along with fruit and water at the end of the race. Turkey Dash
