Heather’s Hungry Turkey Trot Set for Thanksgiving Day

Registration is now open for the 2023 Heather’s Hungry Turkey Trot. The annual 5K will take place on Thursday, November 23 at 8 a.m. The race will kick-off at 132 Main St. (commuter rail parking lot next to Dunkin’.)

The race is held in memory of Heather Olivieri, who passed away in 2019 at age 41 with non-smokers lung cancer. She was a life-long Norfolk resident and King Philip graduate who loved running. In January of 2018, Heather accomplished a long-time goal by finishing the Walt Disney World Marathon while battling cancer. The 5K Thanksgiving Day race is the route she used multiple times while training for the marathon.

Proceeds from the 5K will go towards a scholarship established in Heather’s name. For more information about Heather or to donate to the scholarship, visit
