— Proceeds from the Baldwinsville Kiwanis Turkey Trot will benefit Ronald McDonald Charities of Central New York, Kamp Kiwanis and other charities that help meet the needs of children.

“One hundred percent of the net money raised goes back into the community to help youth and youth activities,” Samoraj said.

In 2009, the Baldwinsville Kiwanis Club pledged $25,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities of CNY to help build a new, larger handicap-accessible Ronald McDonald House. The event also provides funding to send local children to Kamp Kiwanis, a coed camp for children ages 8 to 14 that is aimed at providing fun, physical exercise and adventure.
