SOME Turkey Trot to Fight Hunger

downloadThis Thanksgiving is your chance to do more and be grateful for all that you have. Chances are there’s a turkey trot in your community– do a little googling and see what you can find. Here in DC,  SOME hosts an annual trot to raise money on Thanksgiving day, helping to put a little perspective in all our lives.

SOME’s Turkey Trot is a flat and fast 5K run/walk and a one mile fun-run for the kiddos. If running isn’t your thing you can always volunteer or go cheer on the runners! This is a great organization and a fun tradition I’ve been able to start with my family.  It’s nice to find a way to make the holiday a little bit more about helping your community and a little less about stuffing your face.

According to SOME:

  • $5 provides a family or individual with a full bag of emergency groceries
  • $15 provides a hearty hot lunch to 10 hungry men, women and children
  • $30 provides one month of life-saving medication for a homeless patient
  • $50 provides a day and night of supportive housing for a homeless family

It’s amazing how much you can do for so little.  Take a few minutes and think how you can give back this Thanksgiving!
