Toyota of Orlando strives to be involved in the Central Florida community. One way our Orlando Toyota dealership has been able to reach out this year is with our sister store, Toyota of Clermont. Toyota of Orlando and Toyota of Clermont are proud to present the Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk! It will be taking place November 17 at 8:00 a.m. at the South Lake Historical Society in Clermont. We have chosen to do this event because it was a great opportunity for our sister dealership to get involved before the store is even built!
The Turkey Trot 5K is benefiting a great cause. The proceeds raised will benefit both the South Lake Historical Society and Back to School is COOL- Lake County! These are both great causes. The South Lake Historical Society is a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) tax status. The organization is committed to preserving buildings in the Clermont area for all of its residents and visitors to enjoy. It’s also the location of where the race will begin!
Back to School is COOL- Lake County is also a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity that works on empowering children in the Lake County area to be proud to go to school. With the recent economic times, many children in Lake County haven’t had the proper resources to attend school and feel embarrassed because of it. The Back to School is COOL-Lake County organization works to provide assistance to these children with resources like clothing and school supplies –and a dose of confidence! During the 2011-2012 school year, 5,876 pounds of clothing and school supplies were donated. With the help of the community, an additional 8,148 items were also donated to an awesome cause.
Toyota of Clermont and Toyota of Orlando are so proud to be working with these local organizations. Giving back to the community is something that is very important to our Orlando Toyota dealerships. Toyota of Clermont is partnering with other great organizations to bring the Turkey Trot into fruition. Beef O’Bradys, Schmid Construction and Bob Evans among other local companies are supporting this event.
When you sign up for the Turkey Trot 5K you’ll receive a commemorative race t-shirt and a breakfast donated by Bob Evans! After you cross the finish line you’ll also receive a medal for completing the race. Registration only costs $25 and it supports such awesome local organizations. The South Lake Historical Society is helping to keep Clermont beautiful and restoring history, and the Back to School is COOL-Lake County charity is empowering children to go to school with pride.
Toyota of Clermont is proud to be sponsoring the Turkey Trot 5K. At Toyota of Orlando, as the sister dealership, we are drumming up support anyway we can! While our second location in Clermont is not yet open, we are greatly anticipating having another amazing Toyota dealership near Orlando to serve all of our customers. The Turkey Trot 5K is just one of the ways we are preparing to dive into the Clermont community. Come and join us as we walk and run to raise money on November 17, at 8:00 a.m. We look forward to seeing everyone!
