The wildly popular Thanksgiving Day Trot Against Poverty 5K is back for its 15th year. This is a professionally-timed race for runners, joggers and walkers of all ages and abilities. Trot is more than a healthy start to your holiday…it’s also an unforgettable way to give back while you give thanks!

The goal of this community-based event is to raise funds and awareness for the nonprofit United Against Poverty, whose mission is to inspire and empower people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency.


Make a Difference

This year, we are launching peer-to-peer fundraising for our 15th Annual Trot Against Poverty 5K that will benefit United Against Poverty's programs. UAP provides the following programs: Member Share Grocery Programs (MSGP): a dignified food and household assistance program where you can personally select the nutritious food items your family needs. Crisis Stabilization Program: provides support for those facing instability in their lives. Success Training Employment Program (STEP): a workforce development program dedicated to enhancing job-readiness skills. Education Program: free educational workshops that are open to the public. Create a fundraising team and make a difference in our community by helping UPlift our neighbors in need. United Against Poverty of Indian River County's purpose is to inspire and empower people living in poverty to lift themselves and their families to economic self-sufficiency.
