Welcome to 11th Annual Johnston Health Gobble Waddle event presented by HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. It is a timed run and fun walk event for all ages and fitness levels – definitely family, stroller, and dog friendly. Please remember that all dog participants must be friendly and on a fixed leash at all times. Owners must also be sure to clean up behind their dogs.

The Thanksgiving holiday is a time of giving and it’s important to remember those in our community who need your help. All participants are asked to bring at least five items of canned food to the event or drop them off at HealthQuest. Canned goods will be donated to our partner food bank agencies right here in our community.
