Turkey Trot for Talley on Tap


Friends and neighbors of John and Kristy Talley are organizing a Turkey Trot for Talley 5K Run/Walk, and 1-Mile Fun Run Benefit on November 21.

This event is a benefit race in support of the Talleys. John was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July and is currently undergoing treatment.

Not only was this an absolute shock to them but it’s brought an excessive amount of medical expenses.

Organizers are putting on the event to help give back to a wonderful couple who have given so much to our community.

Funds raised during the Turkey Trot will help offset medical expenses.

Men, women and children of all ages are invited to join others in the community who wish to support the Talley family.

“Join us for a morning of hope, support, awareness and fun!” said Lynette Zimmer, one of the organizers. “And don’t miss out on the 5K Finisher Awards!”

Walk-up registration will begin at 7:15 a.m. on November 21; race start time is 8 a.m. in front of Holden City Hall, located at 101 W. 3rd St. in Holden. Register early and you will receive a t-shirt on the day of the event!

Registration fees are – 5K Run/Walk – $30 if postmarked before November 11; $35 after November 11. And the 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk – $20 if postmarked before November 11; $25 after November 11.

Pre-registration forms can be found at Blue Bird Real Estate, Get Fit Holden, and on the Facebook event page – Turkey Trot for Talley.
With early registration, runners/walkers will receive a commemorative t-shirt.

All registrations must be in by November 11 in order to get a t-shirt. If anyone would like to just purchase a shirt to support the Talleys, the cost is $20 and they need to be ordered by that same date of November 11.

Mail-in registrations need to be sent to Blue Bird Real Estate, c/o Lynette Zimmer, 100 E. 2nd St., Holden, MO 64040.

Event sponsors are Lynette Zimmer, Lois Cheatham and Jennifer Gavoli. If you have any questions, please contact them.

Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to support John and Kristy during this difficult time in their lives.

Join your neighbors for this fun, worthwhile event!
