Big Red '1' Turkey Run

Saturday, November 23, 2019


The Big Red ‘1’ Turkey Run will be held Saturday November 23, 2019 at Fort Riley.  The Turkey Run is for the fami- lies of the Warrior Transition Battalion.  These families often find themselves transitioning out of the active military or may remain active.  This year, per information provided from Fort Riley there are 500 families that will need assistance.  

Volunteers are needed to gather food as well as distribute the food at Fort Riley.  A list of food items will be coming out shortly.  Many members of the Warrior Transition Battalion have been severely injured, the volunteers will be able to show the face of The American Legion when they load the food into cars for those needing assistance.
