Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot – 5K Run/Walk

For more than 24 years, the Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot 5K has welcomed citizens of Naperville and area communities as they join with their friends and families to enjoy a little exercise before celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s 2021 and we are running!

Join us, 8:00 a.m. Thanksgiving Morning at Naperville Central High School for the Naperville Noon Lions Turkey Trot 5K.

The Naperville Noon Lions Foundation is an IRS approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Proceeds from this event support the Lions Social Service Program which provides eye examination, eye glasses and hearing examinations to children and adults in Naperville that cannot afford this type of service.
