To the Editor:
The 2013 McHenry Turkey Trot for Hospice 5K race is coming up for its second season on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28. The race starts at 8 a.m. in the McHenry East High School parking lot.
Proceeds from the race go to JourneyCare Hospice, which has care facilities in Woodstock and Barrington.
Last year, thanks to the amazing outpouring of support from our sponsors, donors, volunteers and 600 runners, we were able to donate $17,000 to JourneyCare. Anyone who has ever been touched by the angels of Hospice knows how special they are.
This year, our goal is 1,000 runners and $30,000.
Registration is now open on our website, www.mchenryturkeytrot.com. There also are places to become a sponsor or volunteer. We also have a Facebook page – facebook.com/McHenryTurkeyTrot – with up-to-date information about the race and our sponsors.
Please come join us on Thanksgiving morning and “run first, eat later … no guilt.”
