On behalf of Christ Church of Arlington and Our Entire Community, the "Chief Turkey" says Thank You!

The Arlington Turkey Trot is a wonderful community event that we have grown to love.

Thanks to the Trot’s donators, promoters, registrants, sponsors and volunteers, together with our neighbors, who are sometimes inconvenienced on Thanksgiving morning.

And, special thanks to the vision of Christ Church of Arlington’s leaders who declared and demonstrated their love and faith in God in 2006 to help our neighbors in Arlington in need of a hand up.

With appreciation and respect,
Mark Riley
Chief Turkey
