PUEBLO — The Pueblo YMCA Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning was a vibrant run that brought together more than 300 participants.

The scenic route of the Thanksgiving event showcased community spirit, and fostered a sense of togetherness. The atmosphere was filled with energy as runners and pets of all ages gathered to contribute to a worthy cause.

Every dollar raised during the event will go to the YMCA's Scholarship Opportunity Fund, which the Y says ensures that no one is turned away due to financial hardships.

The fund helps out with the below opportunities:

  • free membership for all 6th graders in Pueblo County
  • childcare
  • "camperships" to Camp Jackson
  • sports
  • swim lessons
  • membership scholarships

This year's Turkey Trot in Colorado Springs also raised money Thanksgiving morning. That money goes right back into the community.
