John Gurney Turkey Trot

Our annual Thanksgiving day Turkey Trot is held in honor of John Gurney. John Gurney left a tremendous impact on the Shelby Community with his generous spirit of giving. What started as a morning run with a few friends has become a community run inspired to donate cereal boxes to the Shelby Helpline Food Pantry.  The run starts at the Shelby YMCA where you can drop off your cereal box donation and start your run. There is NO registration fee or process, just show up and enjoy the morning before the afternoon feast!
