Thanksgiving Day Dash for Adoption 2017

Burn calories and help form families this Turkey Day


Looking to burn a few last calories before the inevitable Thanksgiving food coma sets in? Head to the Boise Military Reserve on Thursday morning for that rare bird: a Thanksgiving Day trail run, in this case, the Thanksgiving Day Dash for Adoption, Foster Care and Family Reunification. Established in 2012 by the North End Collective Church, TDDA quickly became a tradition for folks who want to help children in need and have some fun doing it. The versatility of the reserve makes it a perfect race venue for all skill levels, with 8-mile, 4-mile, and 1-mile loops to sprint down while sporting your favorite festive costume. Following the races, a silent auction, raffle and costume contest will close out the fun with prizes from local businesses—you're sure to waddle off with something good.
