Thank you to our 17th Annual Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot Racers! 

THANK YOU for joining us as we drumstick dashed across the 17th Annual Guthrie Sayre Turkey Trot finish line.

A commendable crowd of approximately 1,100 runners and generous sponsors helped us raise over $65,000, with all net proceeds directed towards the Guthrie Cancer Care Fund. Your involvement made this event a grand success.
