“The Turkey Trot has become a holiday tradition for many in the Ridgefield community. I love that people look forward to it,” said Georgianna Jones, Foundation member and event organizer. “It’s an opportunity for families and friends to come together, enjoy nature, get a little exercise, and most importantly, give to others. We are proud to bring this event to Ridgefield each year.”
