Race for our heroes in the 2022 Gi4 Turkey Trot.
Gi4 employees and their families are invited to raise money for veterans by completing a virtual marathon—running or walking 26 cumulative miles at any pace and at any time between November 11th and Thanksgiving (November 24th). You can run all 26 miles at once or you can take your time and complete 2 miles a day—whatever works for you.
Gi4 will donate $100 per employee/$50 for each family member who completes the challenge to DAV & VETSports.
How do I virtually race?
1. Register for the race here by November 10th. There's no fee.
2. Gi4 will send registrants an email with a link invitation to join the 2022 Gi4 Turkey Trot for Vets challenge on the Nike Run Club app. If you do not already have the Nike Run Club app, the link will prompt you to download the app and create an account. Once you have an account, you should be added to the challenge, and any runs or walks you record on the Nike app during the challenge period will be counted toward your mileage.
Who is eligible to race?
Gi4 employees and their direct family members (parents, grandparents, siblings, children, and spouse, including direct step-relatives) may join the race. Gi4 employees who finish the race will have $100 donated to DAV and VETSports on their behalf, and family members who finish the race will have $50 donated to DAV and VETSports on their behalf.
All mileage must show up on the challenge in the Nike Run Club app and performed outdoors on on an indoor track where GPS is available.

What do finishers get?

How else can I contribute to DAV or VETSports?
