Kaiser Permanente “How I Thrive” Contest

Kaiser Permanente’s Thrive Together mission enables people to discover different ways they can improve their lives through programs that emphasize great health care, staying active, eating healthy, living well and giving back. In being the official sponsor for the “How I Thrive” Contest, Kaiser Permanente is highlighting its Staying Active component in conjunction with the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot.

While registering, be sure to share with us how the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot makes you or your family “Thrive” in relation to health, wellness and community. In November, our team will go through each submission and pick the top four entries and each will receive a prize on race day.

We will be sharing stories as we lead up to race day so be sure to tune into our social media channels!

Former Participants
“We are participating as a family because we are trying to stay physically healthy and make good health choices. We have each other’s support from the youngest one of 3 years old to our grandparents of 60+ years.” – Ixayana Chacon

“I am 7 years old and I am running my 1st 5k with my family and friends at the SV Turkey Trot. I hope it becomes our new Thanksgiving tradition.” – Reiko Yoshimura

“I want to do my best to help my community and to set a healthy example for my younger brothers, including Connor, who has autism. He is scared to run, but he will be brave when he sees me doing it with him.” – John Cummings, Jr.

TO HELP IMPROVE LIVES. There is a lot I wish to do to help others during a time we are to be so thankful. What better way to start thanksgiving than knowing other lives are being touched just by me walking. I don’t run for me. I run for others!” – Maral Behnam-Garcia
