Last year, a total of 22,124 participants, (supported by 1000 volunteers), ran the 7th Annual Silicon Valley Turkey Trot — effectively raising $612,000 for three local charities: The Second Harvest Food Bank, the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County and the Santa Clara Family Health Foundation Children’s Health Initiative. Since its inception in 2005, the race has donated over $2.2 million to these organizations.
The brainchild of Carl Guardino, head of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, and his wife Leslee, the idea came to them Thanksgiving morning of 2004, when they heard a radio report announcing, “20,000 people running and walking to benefit the needy” — in Sacramento. Carl turned to Leslee and said, “Somebody ought to do a race like that here.” Leslee gave Carl a look that said, “Maybe that somebody should be us.”
