Richard welcomes Kathy Kinane to discuss North County’s Favorite Thanksgiving Day Tradition, The 14th Annual Front Wave Credit Union O’side Turkey Trot. In keeping with Richard’s commitment to giving back to the community, he teamed up with Kathy Kinane to establish the “Move Your Feet Before You Eat!®” Foundation in 2007. Together they discuss the history of the O’side Turkey Trot and the charities it has funded. Kathy Kinane has been marketing, managing and participating in running races, triathlons, bike tours, sports tournaments for over 30 years, and she was honored in February 2015 by RunningUSA.com as a 2015 Trailblazer. Kinane Events has put on 190 events in the last two decades.
Richard has said, “We call ourselves ‘Move Your Feet Before You Eat’ because the whole message behind our foundation is to encourage daily physical activity particularly up in the Oceanside community where we run our biggest race, but for anyone, regular exercise as well as a good diet is very important.”
The 14th Annual Front Wave Credit Union O’side Turkey Trot will have races for everyone. The event offers a costume contest, largest teams competition, fabulous live entertainment on the course and finisher medals for all participants. Free digital photos, medals, shirts, and timing to all registered participants. The event has raised over $321,500 for non-profits that serve Oceanside residents. Recognized as one of the Top Trots in the country by Runner’s World Magazine and the Los Angeles Times, the trot attracts visitors from 46 States and 460 cities.
