For Immediate Release — November 16, 2012
The Vienna Turkey Trot, a running festival in downtown Vienna, Va. this Sunday, November 18, has a new title sponsor: FVCbank (FVCbank). With 1,500 runners expected for the event’s three races, the Turkey Trot begins at 8 a.m. at the Vienna Volunteer Fire Station, 400 Center Street South in Vienna.
“In galvanizing and improving the community, the spirit of the Vienna Turkey Trot speaks to the heart of FVCbank’s mission,” said FVCbank Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David W. Pijor. “We’re proud and excited to be part of the Turkey Trot both as its title sponsor and as active participants.”
Ten FVCbank employees plan to run in Sunday’s races and others will serve as volunteer course marshals. In addition to its financial support of the event, the bank is contributing signage as well as race totes to hold runners’ gear.
In honor of the Turkey Trot’s 10th anniversary, organizers added a 10K race this year to the festival’s 5K race and a one-mile Fun Run.
Proceeds of the Turkey Trot benefit the James Madison High School Marching Band and the Vienna Volunteer Fire Department. Funds will help pay for a new fire engine and support the band’s aspiration to take part in its first national competition. The event also collects non-perishable food items for a local food bank.
