Start a New Family Tradition This Thanksgiving Morning

Lafayette Urban Ministry offers two fun & meaningful community events on Thanksgiving Day (11/28) for you to start a new family tradition. This year, why not get your family engaged in the LUM Community Thanksgiving Celebration and the Turkey Trot 5K Run by cooking, shopping, running, and/or volunteering? Learn more about each event below.


Turkey Trot 5K Run – Bring the Entire Family

For many families in our community, participating in the LUM Turkey Trot 5K Run is a fun tradition. Although it is a professionally timed 5K run, families, dogs, walkers, strollers, wagons, costumes & turkey hats are welcome. It is a great way start off your Thanksgiving day. So, if your family is here for Thanksgiving this year, sign them all up — and start a new family tradition and build a lifetime of memories — all while supporting local families in need through the programs of Lafayette Urban Ministry.
