The Strategic Staffing Solutions Turkey Trot kicks off America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van.

It’s been a family tradition in downtown Detroit for the past thirty-four years. Much more than a variety of races (10K / 5K / 1 Mile), thousands of participants dress in costumes. Often declared “The Parade before The Parade”, participants frolic by the largest spectator crowd in Michigan. What an awesome way to start Thanksgiving Day!
