TINTON FALLS, NJ – A giant turkey in a Unicorn-drawn carriage surprised residents of Seabrook when it arrived on campus for the 17th Annual Turkey Trot on November 20. The 6-foot turkey, the event’s mascot, joined residents as they walked one of three Turkey Trot courses—Turkey Course (1 mile), Chicken Course (1/2 mile) or Cornish Hen (around the parking lot).

After the walk, over 500 turkeys, donated by Seabrook residents and staff, were loaded onto trucks and delivered to Bradley Food Pantry, Interfaith Neighbors, St. Rose of Lima Church and Lunch Break.

“We are thrilled to hold the Turkey Trot again this year,” said Art Sparks, executive director of Seabrook. “Residents and staff look forward to this entertaining annual event where they contribute to a great cause and enjoy a day of fun and exercise.”
