It’s time to get your running/walking shoes ready for our 1st Annual Hallsley 5K Fun Run/Walk Turkey Trot! Our goal this year is to collect food for FeedMore’s Central Virginia Food Bank which provides hunger relief to counties and cities in our region by acquiring needed food items and distributing it to neighbors in need. Currently 1 in 7 persons in our region is food insecure. As we reflect this Thanksgiving season on our own blessings, please remember those in need. The more people who participate, the greater impact we can have helping FeedMore! This race is not timed so it doesn’t matter if you come in 1st, 50th or 100th! What matters is that you make it to the starting line!Hallsley 5K Fun Run/Walk Turkey TrotSunday, November 22nd at 2pmRegistration starts at 1:15pmEntry fee: 4 items of food from list or monetary donation.
