Thank you!

Little did we know that on November 22nd, 1984, our Thanksgiving holiday would change forever. Our one and done little 5k, with 74 runners, raised $520 for the WGN Good Neighbor Food Drive. Suggestions were made to do it again and we did. Year #2, 232 runners. And again, year #3, 407. Every year more and more people joined in the fun. And yes, we do have fun, all the while raising money to help feed our neighbors in need.

Turkey Trot History

A History of Helping
Those In Need

To date, The Dan Gibbons Foundation has donated nearly $3.9 million dollars. We take care to keep all funds raised within the County of DuPage. The funds have provided nearly 4 million meals over the years and the event brings families and a community together on a day for giving thanks.

The organization recently expanded to include other events throughout the year. In June 2017, we announced the new Café Liberty culinary skills training program.

Our efforts are only successful because of the gracious donations of our supporters. Your assistance helps us help others and we always appreciate it.
