Why should you run in the Toyota of Clermont Turkey Trot?
Why is the Toyota of Clermont Turkey Trot so important? All proceeds from the race registrations will go back to the community, benefiting the following organizations:
Back to School is Cool Lake County: Back to School is Cool is a non-profit organization that supports underprivileged children in Lake County. They collect supplies like clothing, shoes, uniforms, backpacks, school supplies, caps & gowns, and even formalwear so kids don't have to face the embarrassment of going without these much-needed items in front of their peers.
South Lake Historical Society: The South Lake Historical Society is another non-profit organization that works diligently to preserve the historical integrity of Clermont and surrounding Lake County. They preserve buildings like The Kern House, Cooper Memorial Library, the Quonset Hut, the Train Depot, and Townsend House!
Our new Toyota dealership near Orlando is thrilled to be able to work towards raising money for these two very important organizations. Help us in our cause - sign up for the 3rd Annual Turkey Trot and hit the road!
