24th Annual NCMC Turkey Trot

The NCMC Foundation along with the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado will host the 24th Annual Turkey Trot Thanksgiving Race Thursday, November 25. The race is open to participants of all ages and abilities and includes a 5K (3.1 miles) Turkey Trot and a 2K (1.2 miles) Gobbler Trek Fun Run/ Walk on a scenic, USATF-certified course.

Turkey trotters will also have the option of running or walking their own virtual race on a course and day of their choosing during Thanksgiving week. So grab your friends and family and run, walk, or trot your way to finishing before you feast!

The CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado provides cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the number one cause of death for men and women in the United States.  According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.

The NCMC Foundation utilizes proceeds from the Turkey Trot event as individual grants which provide financial assistance to patients of the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs who would otherwise not be able to engage in the rehabilitation program.  Participating in cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation through the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado helps individuals improve strength and endurance so they may return to their usual activities and life demands as much as possible with renewed confidence.

For more information on the NCMC Cardiac or Pulmonary Rehabilitation program, please call 970-810-6204.  If you are interested in donating to this worthy program, please visit ncmcfoundation.org.
