The 9th Annual Give n’ Gobble is almost here! This turkey trot, walk, run, and food drive will take place in Sherwood starting at 9:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day! This glorious event includes a 10K run and a 5K walk/run, for all those non-long-distance runners. If you are not the runner, you can still volunteer your services to this event.
The event will be hosted, not only for you to get some exercise in before indulging in your Thanksgiving Day feast, but to raise money for a local food bank! Funds will be collected from sponsorship, registration fees, t-shirt sales, and contributions. Additionally, the Give n’ Gobble event will be gathering food to donate to the Helping Hands Food Bank.
However, the Give n’ Gobble effect does not end on Thanksgiving. It funds the food bank all year long with the aim to put an end to hunger in the local area. It also supports the Backpack program that provides backpacks of nutritious food to school children who don’t have enough food to eat over the weekend.
Last year we saw over 2,000 runners and walkers on Thanksgiving morning. This year promises to be bigger and better than before, so reserve your spot today! Participants should meet at 8:30 a.m. at 16956 SW Meinecke Rd, Sherwood, OR 97140 on Thanksgiving morning.
