The founders of Turning Point Ministries love Edmond. Our current board members love Edmond. Edmond is a great community in which to live! But, the founders of Turning Point Ministries realized that there were many families who worked in Edmond that could not afford to purchase a home here due to the high median home price. We believe that it is important for teachers and city workers and others working in our community to be able to live here as well. That’s the reason Turning Point Ministries only builds homes in Edmond! Please join us as a volunteer and/or supporter!
It’s time for our 11th Annual Edmond Turkey Trot! Thanks to all of you who have supported us over the past 10 years!! Because of you, we have been able to continue to provide quality, affordable housing for qualified individuals or families in Edmond. Our families come from all walks of life, from teachers to single moms to missionaries – but no matter what they all have one thing in common – they are in need of an opportunity to own an affordable home in Edmond.
We especially need your help now! Due to the economy taking such a hard hit during this time of Covid-19, our applications have steadily increased. We are trying to keep up with the need but any help that you can provide during this season is greatly appreciated. Our thoughts are with all of you during this time; due to the upswing in Covid-19 cases locally, we have decided to CONTINUE with our race this year, but to host it ‘virtually’. This means, you still run or bike the race of your choice, but you will do it on your own on Thanksgiving morning. We will be following along on social media and watching for your posts and sharing them with everyone else!
HOW IT WORKS
- Register by November 20th to receive a t-shirt
- Run a 5K or Bike a 10K:

Turning Point has been chosen as one of the MINOR tithe charities that benefit from a percentage of the Red Day Run proceeds this year so we benefit when you join the Red Day Run because of Turning Point. In 2015, Keller Williams Central Oklahoma began the RED Day Run here in Edmond, as an annual 5K Run to raise money for local charities. The 2020 Red Day Run will be held in downtown Edmond on July 25th with the Fun Run kicking off at 8:30 AM and the 5K starting at 9:00 AM.
Here’s how you can help Turning Point:
1. Register for the Red Day Run.
2. Choose the MAJOR charity you want to run for (Turning Point will not be in this list).
3. Forward your email confirmation for the Red Day Run to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for supporting Turning Point!
