Laveen Turkey Trot and Kids' Dash

Laveen, AZ

Start off your Thanksgiving with an invigorating 5K, 1 mile fun walk/run or kids’ dash in Laveen! 

This 5K (3.1 mile) run/walk is GREAT because it is a timed (with running chip) event for experienced runners but also developed for those who have NEVER run before or who choose to walk. 

Come join us and celebrate something that we can truly be thankful for: 


Riverbend Prep Academy has joined with the Laveen Community Council to host the Laveen Turkey Trot & Kids Dash. 

Their common goal to bring Laveen closer together and support the community to get healthy and active makes this a perfect partnership.  

Proceeds from this event will be going to the Laveen Community Council and Riverbend Prep Academy.  

Thank you to our sponsors!

About The Event

The Turkey Trot will begin and end on the track at Cesar Chavez High School Stadium.  The route will wind through Cesar Chavez Park where you can enjoy the beautiful views.  The 1 mile run will also begin and end on the track.  The FREE Kids Dash will be located on the football field in the middle of the track and while it is free, all parents must register their child beginning at 7:00AM on November 22, 2018.

Riverbend Prep Academy is a small (K-8) public, charter school located in Laveen.  Riverbend’s mission is not only to develop life-long learners who are prepared to contribute purposefully to society; but also to be a school that contributes to the value and well-being of its community. 

The Laveen Community Council is dedicated to the community of Laveen and its surrounding areas.  They are a 100% volunteer-based organization and all money earned helps to fund youth programs, create a connected community, and build neighborhoods of which we can all be proud.

Can't join us for the run and/or want to help even more.  Every donation is welcome to support the Riverbend Prep Academy Health/Fitness initiative or programs provided by the Laveen Community Council.
