A perfect fall day played host to 9,500 runners and walkers raising money for their neighbors in need. More than $550,000 in corporate sponsorships, race fees and participant fundraising will help 30,000 people in poverty with groceries, housing, emergency shelter, hot meals, employment services, Summer Lunches, Toy Shop gifts and clothing.
The festive event featured costumes, music, a VIP area sponsored by Northwestern Mutual, photo booth, FISH radio personalities Kevin and Taylor and more.
“What a great morning to show our gratitude,” said Pres. and CEO Ike Reighard. “When thousands of people gather on Thanksgiving Day to help others, it’s one of the most meaningful events in the country.”
