Solano Hearts United (SHU) is a public benefit charity in Solano County, California, comprised of 501(c)(3) partner organizations serving high risk children, families and seniors. SHU believes in a collective impact model with the goal of raising public awareness and education by holding fundraising and community events such as the Solano Turkey Trot. This annual event began on Thanksgiving Day 2009, with the vision of bringing a family-friendly 10K Run/5KRun/Walk to the local area. This event helps raise much needed funds to support the Solano Hearts United partner organizations in serving local families in need.
The four partner nonprofits include Children’s Nurturing Project, Mission Solano, Meals on Wheels of Solano County, and The Suisun City Salvation Army Kroc Center. The event is held in Suisun Valley in Solano County, with the main venue and start/finish line at Solano Community College. Our Race Director, Carol Gilpin, has been with us since our first race. Carol is the owner of Fleet Feet Sports in Vacaville and has been active through running, walking and triathlons for more than 20 years.
We are blessed to have this opportunity to “Give Thanks ♥ Give Back” to Solano County high risk children, families and seniors living in Solano County. Hope to see you bright and early on Thanksgiving morning!
