The Turkey Trott is a 5k walk/run that the students can pay to participate in here during the school day the day before school gets out for Thanksgiving. The cost to participate is 2 can goods or $2. Shallotte Middle School has been having the Turkey Trott for over 10 years now.

Each year the can foods that are collected are donated to local food pantries and the money collected is also donated to local food pantries or non profit agencies that help feed those in need.

Almost all of our students participate in the Turkey Trott.
