Thanks to Shelly Marsh and Punky Fry for letting P.O.R.K. (Prineville Oregon Running Klub) help continue the tradition of the Dad’s Place Run Like a Turkey this year. This is an untimed community 5k run/walk on Thanksgiving morning. Come get moving with family and friends before spending the remainder of the day eating, napping, and cheering on your favorite football teams.

The Prineville Senior Center is the primary beneficiary of this year’s race proceeds. Run Like a Turkey funds will be used to cover the costs of cut-and-wrap processing for a generous private donation of three hogs (for the center’s meal delivery program*). Thanks to all who register and donate in support of this important service in our community.

*Currently, the meals are Home Delivery and Pickup, but very soon they hope to be able to open back up for in-house meals.
