A new display on Palmer’s West campus celebrates the eight years the Palmer Spine has provided “the backbone” of the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot (SVTT), a Thanksgiving-morning race/walk that’s raised more than $6.5-million for local charities since the inaugural event in 2005.

The Palmer West “Spine” made its debut (above) in the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot in 2009. The event has grown to become a Silicon Valley tradition, with approximately 25,000 participants helping to raise nearly $1 million at the 2016 event. Palmer also is one of the event sponsors, and has earned “Fittest Firm” honors multiple times for having the largest number of registrants in its company size.

Palmer faculty clinicians and interns provide race-day care to participants, and the West campus Associated Student Government organizes an on-campus donation drive to collect non-perishable food items in support of the SVTT’s “Can Do Challenge” benefitting the Second Harvest Food Bank.
