Run a Race


One motivated staff member likes to work some exercise into the mix on Thanksgiving morning.

"Each Thanksgiving, my relatives and I run in a five-mile road race. This 'Turkey Trot' is great exercise, and we don't feel guilty about all the turkey we eat later that day! It also gives us something to be thankful for, because all of the proceeds go to local charities."
