Give thanks by giving back on Thanksgiving
Before you gather to gobble up your Thanksgiving feast, round up your neighbors, co-workers, family and friends for a food-raising, calorie-burning, good time at the 2014 Eastbay Turkey Trot 5-K Run & Walk!
Event proceeds benefit the Marathon County Hunger Coalition, an initiative of United Way. Last year, the generosity of race participants and Eastbay gave the Coalition the opportunity to collaboratively purchase over 68,000 pounds of food for area food assistance programs.
There are three ways to participate. Pick one, two or even better, all three.
- Runners and walkers can pre-register at: http://www.eastbay.com/turkeytrot/
- Not a runner? Volunteers are still needed for registration, course marshals, water stations and other duties. If you would like to help you can sign up through Volunteer Connection. You can also call United Way’s 2-1-1 and an operator will help you register for volunteer opportunities at the Turkey Trot.
- Help promote the event by liking the Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/WausauEastbayTurkeyTrot
Whether you're running, volunteering or just cheering, head to Eastbay in Wausau on Thursday, November 27, Thanksgiving morning, and start off this season of giving by exercising the most important muscle in your body: your heart.
