Twenty–one years ago, James J. Maguire, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Philadelphia Insurance Companies and his family initiated the Turkey Trot to benefit the people of Face to Face. What began as a family fun run has grown into a competitive 5 mile race, with a 1 mile fun run/walk. The Turkey Trot is now our largest fundraising event, enabling us to meet the critical needs of the people of Germantown. The popularity of the Trot continues to grow; proceeds have more than doubled over the last five years. In 2012 over 1500 runners registered for this event. For the last several years, Mayor Nutter has lent his support, presenting the awards at the finish line.
