Rescue Mission Holds Sixth Annual Drumstick Dash to Benefit its 95th Annual Gobbler Gathering


The Evansville Rescue Mission’s sixth annual Drumstick Dash presented by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will kick off Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 8 a.m. It will consist of either an 8K, 5K mile run/walk, or a short course of just 1 mile. 

The Evansville Rescue Mission is tremendously excited to have its sixth annual Drumstick Dash to start and finish at the C.K. Newsome Community Center (100 East Walnut Street, Evansville, IN 47713).  Runners and walkers will have the opportunity to go through historic Bosse Field, Garvin Park for the Drumstick Dash’s 8K and 5K routes, with 8K participants being able to briefly run or walk on Evansville’s Pigeon Creek Greenway.

 The Rescue Mission is expecting to field nearly 1,000 runners and walkers for the sixth annual Drumstick Dash where participants will have a chance to win a free frozen turkey and a commemorative Drumstick Dash medal and to choose from a variety of food court options.

 Proceeds of the Drumstick Dash will offset the Rescue Mission’s annual Gobbler Gathering, which will be held ten days later on Tuesday, November 21 at the Old National Events Plaza (715 E. Locust St., Evansville, IN 47708) where more than 2,202 Tri-State families will be able to receive a Thanksgiving food basket filled with enough food to last through Thanksgiving.

 The Drumstick Dash is extremely grateful for the following sponsors who have entrusted the Evansville Rescue Mission to feed literally thousands of Tri-State families through the Gobbler Gathering: TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, Old National Events Plaza, A+ Derr Heating and Cooling, Amana, Atlas World Group, Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Indiana,  Packaging Corporation of America, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Product Acceptance and Research, Midwest Communications, Berry Global, Deaconess Hospital, F.C. Tucker Emge Realtors, Head’s Construction, Old National Bank, Shoe Carnival, Saint Vincent Evansville, and Nomad Technology Group.
