Napa, CA – On Saturday, November 21, 2015, In Shape Health Clubs, Napa Valley College, the NVC Student Veteran’s Organization and Napa Running Company have joined forces to host the 3rd Annual Napa Valley Turkey Trot to help needy families this Thanksgiving Season.
The day will also celebrate the life of beloved community member Patty Renfrow, who passed away suddenly in February. Renfrow spent many years at Napa Valley College as a CalWORKs/EOPS Advisor, helping students that were first-generation college attendees or low income and in need extra assistance to succeed. She also started the Napa Valley Adult Education program New Beginnings, which helps teen parents.
In honor of Renfrow, community organizers have made the family fun mile free. Families are invited to enjoy the festivities held at Napa Valley College, where there will also be a Kid’s Zone, entertainment, and a canned food/turkey drive with the Salvation Army. Distance runners will enjoy 50’s classic tunes, finisher medals, custom t-shirts and race treats.
