3rd Annual “Planksgiving” Event

Sun City Shadow Hills Is Proud to Present the 3rd Annual Planksgiving Event

Marlena Santiago started Planksgiving November of 2016 to encourage participants to build a stronger core. She named it “Planksgiving” and gave the winners the title “King and Queen Turkey.”

In 2016, Linda Aasen was our first Queen Turkey. The runner up was Linda Richards, who won the Modified Turkey category. In 2017 our turkeys became so strong that we no longer needed a modified turkey category, only full planks!

Our 2017 Queens were Mary Ann and Gloria Figure.

This year SCSH would like to have a King Turkey standing next to a Queen Turkey. Planksgiving is open to all residents of Sun City Shadow Hills. Come join the comradery among participants, fitness fun, and most importantly test your strength gains over this past year!

Join Marlena on November 16, 2018 at 7:00 AM in the Montecito Group Exercise Room.


Participants will perform a full plank on toes and forearms. The one female and one male participant that can hold their plank the longest will become 2018 King & Queen Turkey.

Mats are available, but you are welcome to bring your own mat and towel.
