For more than 40 years, the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot has been a Thanksgiving tradition drawing more than 20,000 people to Washington Park for a four-mile run/walk and community celebration each year.
As you (probably) know, all proceeds from the Mile High United Way Turkey Trot support our work and help us change the odds for families and individuals in our community. What does Mile High United Way do, you ask? We take on the biggest, most complex issues facing Metro Denver. We believe every child has the right to a safe and stimulating place to learn, and that when every youth in Metro Denver graduates prepared for college or a career, our community is stronger. We also believe that when people don't have their basic needs met, longer-term goals like finding financial stability are out of reach.
