13th Annual Brainerd Turkey Run

Each year the Aadzuhman Shrine Club hosts the Brainerd Turkey Run to raise money for Shriners Hospital for Children-Twin Cities and of course to have a little fun along the way. You never know what kind of temperatures Mother Nature is going to bring you during Thanksgiving. It can be a nice sunny day, or it could be a blizzard outside. Either way, we are up for the challenge. If you would like to burn off some calories for Thanksgiving and also help raise some money for a good cause, we would love for you to join us.
