Thursday, November 26

Von Franken Family Food Run (8-9:30 a.m.)

Tulsa Running Club’s annual Von Franken Family Food Run is still on, but adjusted to help keep you safe.

Everyone is invited to come out between 8am and 9:30am to support the Salvation Army with nonperishable food items and/or a toy for the Angel Tree. Sapulpa Furry Friends will also be there collecting supplies for our furry family members.

We won’t have pancakes, coffee or water this year, but feel free to go for a walk or run with your family and friends. Even though it’s not quite the same this event is a great way to start the holiday and give to those in need. #fillthetruck

Please note: Jackson is closed to traffic from the North. The park is only accessible from 23rd Street. Also, the trail is closed from the Boat House to the South. Plan for an out and back route, if you run from the park.
