Father joes villages 5k 1


Registration is now open for the 22nd Annual Father Joe’s Villages 5K, presented by Aya Healthcare! San Diego’s longest-standing Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot benefits Father Joe’s Villages Food Services Programs, which provides nearly a million meals annually.

Father Joe’s Villages’ holistic approach to help individuals experiencing homelessness is centered around four pillars: Meeting Basic Needs, Investing in Children, Making Health a Priority, and Strengthening Self-Sufficiency. It is crucial that our neighbors have their basic needs met before they can achieve long-term independence, and three nutritious meals a day are essential to their overall well-being.


Join San Diegans this Thanksgiving at Balboa Park to ensure no neighbor goes hungry.

$25 – provides 2 weeks of hot lunches for a veteran struggling on the streets
$50 – provides a Thanksgiving meal for 25 people
$100 – provides 3 meals a day for 1 week for a parent and child living in shelter
$250 – provides 7 food pantry packages for families in need


This impactful event would not be possible without the support of their returning Presenting Sponsor: Aya Healthcare. “We are honored to return as the Presenting Sponsor for the 2023 Thanksgiving 5K and assisting Father Joe’s Villages with providing nutritious meals for families and individuals struggling with food insecurity this holiday season and throughout the year. From providing healthcare workers for local hospitals and healthcare facilities, to offering our employees volunteer opportunities to give back, our corporate culture is deeply rooted in making a positive and lasting impact in all communities we serve,” shared Amber Zeeb, Chief People Officer, EVP, Global Employee Services & Infrastructure, at Aya Healthcare.
