Mike Bratton and the MEB II Turkey Trot ~ Going Virtual for 2020
Raise your hand if you have participated in the Annual MEB II Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day! This Thursday fellow 49er Rotarian Mike Bratton will share plans for the 2020 MEB II Annual Turkey Trot ~ this year going virtual. In honor of his son, Michael Edward Bratton II, the Annual MEB II Turkey Trot is sponsored by MEB2 Foundation, a nonprofit organization funded by local community and business support.
The MEB2 Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2006 after Michael Edward Bratton II took his own life at the age of 25. In memory of beloved Michael, the organization's primary focus is to support local youth activities, A New Day, and suicide and depression awareness and prevention in Nevada County. 100% of the proceeds raised at the Turkey Trot are given directly back into our community.
Early detection of depression and youth withdrawal is a goal of our organization. Beneficiaries of MEB2 include organizations such as A New Day that offer resources for life’s hurts. A New Day is a local, free, counseling center created to help individuals through their emotional pain. They exist to offer healing, hope, answers, direction, and tools to effectively deal with yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s pain.
