Meet the Gobble Gait Turkey!

Definition of Mercy:

mercy : noun mer·cy \ˈmər-sē\ : kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation

A contest was run in 2016 to name our new mascot!  We felt the name Mercy perfectly defined our mission and the meaning of the day! Mercy the Turkey is a symbol of everything Gobble Gait stands for!

He might be a newcomer to the race, but he's already been out in the community and we know that he's NOT SHY! He loves Gobble Gait supporters! Find him for photos, high fives and hugs on Thanksgiving Morning!

We look forward to having Mercy with us representing Gobble Gait for years to come! 

Meet the Gobble Gait Turkey!
