Each year, The Chatham Turkey Trot attracts upwards of 1,000 runners who help raise funds for our first responders and diabetes research and education including the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department, the Diabetes Research Institute, The Barton Center for Diabetes Education, and the Chatham Emergency Squad. Since 2009, we have raised nearly $200,000 from the generous support of our sponsors, donors, and runners.
The Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department is dependent upon the support and contributions they receive from the residents they serve.

We are 87 of your neighbors, men and women. Most of us live in Chatham Township and Chatham Borough. We range in age from students to retirees. We come from all professions. We have only three attributes in common: we are highly trained professional EMTs (or training to qualify), we are highly motivated to provide excellent care, and we want to serve our neighbors and our community, without tangible reward.
