Fast Before the Feast Turkey Trot
Most of us are extremely fortunate. On Thanksgiving Day, we get to sit down to a nice meal, surrounded by friends and family. With the economic hardships over the past five years, many in our community aren't so blessed.
Local food shelves try to be there, but they need our help. For two of them, Fast Before The Feast is an important way for them to meet the needs of the community. Over the past five years, participants to this race have donated more than 20,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to help stock the shelves for the winter.
What makes Fast Before The Feast unique is that we offer thousands of dollars worth door prizes to participants...but they must bring a bag full of food items for the food shelf in order to be entered into the drawing. That gives us an opportunity to increase donations, and give great prizes to our athletes - a win-win!
The race offers both a 10K and 5K option, as well as a popular kids' race. All participants receive a commemorative race shirt (or finisher's medals for the kids). Families and pets are encouraged to attend.
