The Cedars House will be open 7am-11am on Thanksgiving morning
for the 24th Annual Turkey Trot!
Twenty–four years ago, James J. Maguire, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Philadelphia Insurance Companies and his family initiated the Turkey Trot to benefit the people of Face to Face. What began as a family fun run has grown into a competitive 5 mile race, with a 1 mile fun run/walk. The Turkey Trot is now our largest fundraising event, enabling us to meet the critical needs of the people of Germantown. The popularity of the Trot continues to grow; proceeds have more than doubled over the last five years. In 2012, over 1500 runners registered for this event.
Face to Face is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) human services organization dedicated to the health, well-being, and stability of the Philadelphia community. Face to Face meets basic human needs and reduces suffering. With hospitality, we provide a safe environment and practical tools, which enable the people of our community to confront personal challenges, empower their lives, and fulfill their unique potential.
