Today’s Groupon values the optimism of having something to run for by combining exercise and charitability: for $25, you get entry into the Thanksgiving Day Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot charity race, a commemorative T-shirt, and post-run refreshments, an up to $40 value.

As varied as a turkey-day dinner spread, the Turkey Trot offers a 5K Run/Walk and a 10K Run. Kids can join in the spirit with a fun run for 2–9-year-olds ($10 registration online). Along with a costume contest and post-run refreshments, this sojourn through the valley will be one of the more memorable foot-trips you’ve made since running full-speed to catch that last helicopter out of Toronto.

In the time-honored spirit of thanks-giving, the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot involves a great deal of human kindness and very few holograms. The proceeds from the fresh-air run/trot/saunter/stilt-traipse benefit three local charities: Second Harvest Food Bank, The Santa Clara Family Health Foundation, and The Housing Trust of Santa Clara. It's a symbiotic event in which the earth pours fitness into your body and your commitment to the race pours generosity back in the community with a charity-pitcher.

Buy multiple and get the whole family in on an exercise that will justify sweet potato and cranberry sauce gorging contests decided by a panel of celebrity judges. Make sure you catch all the charitable running excitement on a brand new Nikon D5000 digital SLR, with 12.3-megapixel image quality and a vari-angle color LCD monitor.

Football and Fun Runs: The Key Diffs

Today’s Groupon presents you with a choice: Should you spend your Turkey Day watching football or engaging in a charity fun run? To help you decide, here are the key differences between helping those in need and watching the game:

Fun Run: Leaves you feeling great physically and spiritually.
Football: Leaves you with in-depth knowledge of beer selling points.

Fun Run: Brings neighbors together.
Football: Brings nachos and screaming together.

Fun Run: Great opportunity to help the less fortunate.
Football: Great opportunity to point out cheerleaders to bookworm nephew.

Fun Run: Has a positive social impact and is a fun excuse to get out of the house.
Football: Has no redeeming social value and is a fun excuse to avoid talking to your significant others.
