Dana Point Turkey Trot Announces Military Discount Program through Exclusive Partnership with GovX
Military Discount Shopping Site to Offer 50 Percent Off Dana Point Turkey Trot Registrations to Support Those Who Protect and Serve
To take advantage of the exclusive registration discounts for the Dana Point Turkey Trot, military personnel can simply join GovX.com for free. Once verified through the GovX verification system, members receive a unique promotional code to use during checkout on the Dana Point Turkey Trot website. The verification process ensures only qualified military receive the privileged discount, not the general public.
“This year, the Dana Point Turkey Trot wanted to extend a special welcome and discount to our Armed Forces and show our appreciation for all they do,” said Heather Johnston, executive director, Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. “We are so pleased to be partnering with GovX.com, to make it easy for those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces to qualify for the 50 percent discount. GovX already offers the best discounts on the best products for military and government personnel and we are proud to call them a Turkey Trot partner.”
The partnership furthers the Dana Point Turkey Trot’s commitment to supporting the military. Last year, the Dana Point Turkey Trot donated $25,000 to the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, an organization dedicated to supporting those who protect and serve, and their families. This year, the Dana Point Turkey Trot will once again fundraise for the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group. GovX.com is built on the same foundation, recognizing and offering substantial discounts on premiere lifestyle products only to this deserving population and donating a portion of its proceeds to partnering military associations and foundations.
