Turkey Day 5k

A few weeks ago I began my search for a Thanksgiving day run to participate in. If we were planning on being home for the holiday I would have a pretty nice variety of choices for something like this. But I soon found that my choices near my dad's house in northern Minnesota were not as varied. In fact, the races I did find were both at least an hour from his house and the weekend prior to Thanksgiving.
I guess I'd just get up that morning and go for a run onmy own or maybe one of my brothers would join me, unless...
I organized my own!
Why not? If you want something- make it happen!
And suddenly the Families Forever Turkey Day 5k was created! For those you don't know, Families Forever was created almost seven years ago in memory of my mother, it is a scholarship we give each year to two young women in the Lake Park Audubon high school and to a Miss Northwest contestant. For more detailed information you can visit our website here. My aunt Peggy is the spearhead of the whole scholarship idea. Take a minute and look at the photos from this year's Garden Show and Tea- the place where our scholarship money is raised every August.  If you're a quilter- this is the place to display your work!
My goal for the 5k is to raise more funds for the scholarships and to have a great time kicking off the Thanksgiving weekend! If you are interested in being part of our anaugural event please check out our Facebook event page and register here. Registration is $25 which gets you a morning of fun and a very cool hoodie!
Pleas sign up and join us! If you're not a runner/walker or don't want to brave the chilly weather- we are looking for a few volunteers as well!
