SOME Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger
Guess what I did yesterday?
I signed up for my first official 5k race! My friend, Sonia, and I decided to create a team to run the race and raise money for So Others Might Eat, a nonprofit in DC that helps feed homeless individuals in the DC area. There are a lot of Thanksgiving Day 5ks in the DC metro area, but we chose this one because 1) it supported a good cause and 2) it is convenient for us to get to considering we don’t have cars and it is a holiday!
Our team name is 5k to Couch (get it? ha ha ha!). We are hoping that some of our friends will be in DC for Thanksgiving and decide to join us at the race! If we can get a few more team members, then I am confident that we will have no problem reaching our desired goal of raising $250 for SOME!
Check out our team page here (like the graphic?) for more information on SOME, to join the team, or to donate to the cause!
Do you have any plans to run a race on Thanksgiving Day or in the near future?
