Chaska Turkey Trot

This year we're going virtual!
Due to difficulties caused by COVID-19, Virtual Turkey Trot is raising funds for the Hawk Haul student food shelf and Chaska Rotary's End Polio Now initiative. We have shaped this year's Turkey Trot into a 10-day challenge where you can compete and after you can challenge your friends and family to run a 5K, or by doing an activity to get your heart rate up (activities posted below in infographic). Every donation is much appreciated during these uncertain times! Thank you.

Chaska Hawk Haul
The Hawk Haul was founded in 2013 by Chaska High School students Kayla Emerson and Jessica Hardy to provided food, personal hygiene products and school supplies to students in need. The CHS Student Council has carried on the tradition of this food shelf and these students vision and passion for helping others. The Hawk Haul has grown and continues to be a valuable resource here at Chaska High School.

Chaska Rotary End Polio Now Initiative

Rotary International is a global leader in the campaign to eradicate polio. Through its End Polio Now Campaign, as a key partner in the global effort to eradicate polio, Rotary International has vowed to end this crippling disease. Since 1986, Rotary International has led the battle against Polio, and kept the pressure on as worldwide cases plummeted from 350,000 per year to several hundred. When India went off the list of endemic countries in 2012, we took one more step toward eradicating a human disease from the earth for only the second time in history. Now, Rotary and its partners are This Close to making that dream a reality. Chaska Rotary actively participates in the campaign to end polio through its annual 5K Turkey Trot as well as contributions by many members to the Rotary International Foundation. The Rotary Club of Chaska believes we are “This Close” to ending polio.
