Sure, some people know proceeds from the Wobble goes to charities. Here’s the rundown in black and white. Since 2013 the Turkey Day event has distributed more than $150,000 to community nonprofits.
• Last year the Rotary Club of New Tampa donated $46,000 to community nonprofits—one-third of which came from Wobble proceeds. The club’s signature project funds mobile pantries through Feeding Tampa Bay, Meals of Hope, Meals on Wheels and meals for families of injured veteran’s staying at Fisher House.
• Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel Foundation provides mobile medical and hygiene outreach for people in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. Pioneer Medical Group, the Wobble title sponsor, provides all the medical care.
• FITniche has funded two high capacity wheelchair accessible chilled drinking fountains with water bottle fillers at both Flatwoods Park trailheads. They also purchased two racing wheelchairs for Ainsley’s Angels. One wheelchair went to a family who participates regularly so the mother can run during the week as well as during races with her child.
Registration is open at www.WiregrassWobbleTurkeyTrot.org. Don’t run and don’t care to walk? How about volunteering?
