Remember, there is no entry fee for this event.  However, participants are asked to donate food or household items relative to the distance or amount of time running.  As we've scheduled this event near the Thanksgiving holiday, holiday foods would be greatly appreciated by the community.  Other items are also in high demand.  These are items not covered in a traditional food stamp program:  condiments, household cleaners, light bulbs, toilet paper and facial tissue.  Please feel free to donate what you can - we won't turn anyone away due to lack of donations.
     This may also be a good time of year to retire those old sneakers with so many miles on them.  Often though, there is plenty of life left for these shoes.  If you're planning to resole yourself next spring, consider donating your retiring shoes to someone who could get lots more life from them.
     Thanks you for being wonderful people!
