About ECHO's 5K "Strut Your Stuffing" Turkey Trot:
Project ECHO proudly presents the 4th Annual 5K “Strut Your Stuffing” Turkey Trot for Thanksgiving Day 2015! Early registration is encouraged as shirts are guaranteed only for the first 250 participants. Early registration will be accepted through midnight of November 18th; so be sure to mark your calendars and register early! Same-day registration will be available the morning of the race beginning at 6:00 a.m. The race will begin at 7:00 a.m. for runners and 7:15 a.m. for walkers and strollers. We anticipate the event will end at approximately 9:00 a.m. The race begins and ends at The Arc of Southern Maryland's Community Resource Center.
To add your own fun to the event try running in Thanksgiving Day costumes! We want to see Turkeys being chased by Pilgrims being chased by American Indians! This is a fun, healthy way for the whole family to give “Thanks” on Thanksgiving while giving back to the community. Want to get in a Thanksgiving Day workout while simultaneously helping the homeless? So do we! Register early and join us as we strut our stuffing for the homeless families in our community.

About Project ECHO:
Project ECHO Inc. provides emergency shelter to homeless men, women, and children. Entire families from our community have been able to rely on Project ECHO for the past 23 years. Since this nonprofit organization opened its doors in 1992, it has offered a safe, sober, drug and alcohol free environment, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
In 2014 alone, the ECHO House provided over 14,000 bed nights and over 27,000 hot meals to those we serve. Many of these meals are provided by local Ministries and Civic Organizations. It's this kind of generosity that makes it possible for us to provide shelter to those in need and to provide food to those who are hungry.
