Each year, the Helen L. Diller Vacation Home for Blind Children hosts two major fundraising events; the Barefoot Ball in September and the Turkey Trot in November.

2020 Virtual Turkey Trot

Thank you for your interest in the 2020 Turkey Trot 5K/1.5 Mile Walk. The race will be moving to a virtual-only event, due to ongoing public health concerns and the safety guidelines currently in place. While we are unable to celebrate in-person, we are excited about the opportunity to bring our annual event to you virtually. Lace up your sneakers, run or walk on your own time between Wednesday, Nov. 25 and Monday, Nov. 30 and support the Helen L. Diller Vacation Blind Home and our mission of providing an all expense paid vacation for blind and visually impaired children.


Burn off those Thanksgiving calories and kick-off Festive Friday.
