Saturday Sept. 28, 2019 – Race Day
Featuring a 5KM walk/run & 10KM run, children’s obstacle course, silent auction, prizes and a pre-registration Spaghetti Dinner held at the Holiday Inn Express, families across Renfrew County look forward to the annual fall event!
Proceeds from this year’s Turkey Trot will fund upgrades and replace equipment in the Surgical Department and help support the Pembroke Regional Hospital Orthopedics Program (new as of January 2017).
Publicly launched in 2005, the Holiday Inn Express Dr. Kim Armstrong Turkey Trot is held in honour of Kim Armstrong, a Pembroke local and chiropractor, who passed away in 2005, after suffering from a stroke. Since 2005, the Turkey Trot has raised over $150,000 in support of bursaries and hospital programs, including contributing towards equipment purchases for the Out-Patient Rehabilitation Department, helping to bring home our Regional MRI and supporting the Cutting Edge Campaign to upgrade the Surgical Department and support the Orthopaedics Program.
