5K Give Thanks Fun Run and Walk slated for Thanksgiving day

Melinda Fields, community contributor • Oct 28, 2013 at 2:04 PM

The Shepherd's Center in Rogersville will be hosting a 5K Give Thanks Fun Run and Walk for the 4th year on Thanksgiving Day. Tony Forrester began this tradition four years ago when he saw the need for extra food in his local food pantry for the holidays. This year Tony has had to step aside due to other obligations and has allowed the staff at The Shepherd's Center to go ahead with his vision. The race will begin at 8 a.m. on Thursday Nov. 28th. The cost is $15 or a 15 pound turkey for pre registration or $20 or a 15 pound turkey race day. You must pre register to get a free race shirt. Race day registration will begin at 7 am. You can pick up a race form at The Shepherd's Center at 306 East Main St. Rogersville Monday thru Saturday 10 a.m. -5 p.m. or at OfOneAccord@yahoo.com or for further information contact Melinda Fields at (423) 272-4626. The proceeds will benefit The Christmas For The Children Program food box distribution.
