SportsSignup is once again is partnering with the Troy Turkey Trot to provide fast, convenient, secure online registration for the estimated 7,000 runners and walkers who are expected to participate in the Capital Region’s premier Thanksgiving Day sporting event.
SportsSignup’s registration software has an integrated drop-down feature that allows users to designate a charitable donation when registering for an event. Registrants for the 65th Annual Troy Turkey Trot may select from among the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York, the Troy Boys & Girls Club and the Lansingburgh Boys & Girls Club.
Registrants so far have voluntarily donated more than $4,000 to the three organizations.
“The opportunity to give back to our communities is something our employees appreciate and that we value as a company,” SportsSignup CEO Anthony Bruno said. “We’re pleased that our service can provide a gateway not only to the organizations we’ve partnered with for this event, but for worthy causes in communities throughout North America.”
The 65th Annual Troy Turkey Troy features competitive 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer races, a Grade School Mile and the one-mile Turkey Walk. The Turkey Trot, which started with six runners in 1916, traditionally is among the most popular road races in the Northeast and a Thanksgiving Day tradition for families across the Capital Region.
This is the second year that SportsSignup has provided online registration and road race management for the Troy Turkey Trot.
“The Troy Turkey Trot is a wonderful event for families and participants of all ages and abilities. We’re thrilled that event organizers count on our service to help them manage registrations and thereby enhance the overall race experience,” Mr. Bruno said. “We’re proud of the service we offer to clients and partners throughout the nation, but it’s especially gratifying to be part of such a special event so close to home, where our employees and their families can enjoy it as well.”
