WK3 Inspire Challenge - Outrun the Turkey
My friend Erin got up early and joined the other 7500 runners who ran an annual 5k race on Thanksgiving morning. The proceeds benefited Wheeler Mission. through the entry fee for the race.
They also did a huge canned food drive loading up some moving trucks. What a great idea! It's a great alternative to manning the traditional soup kitchen lines. In my area there were more volunteers than the soup kitchens could handle so lots of people entered the race with friends and family.
There are "drumstick dashes" around the country, not just in Indy.
