Eastbay Turkey Trot Raises $43,000

For seven years runners & walkers have been joining families and friends for the annual Eastbay Turkey Trot in Wausau, WI.  This has become a tradition for many, some racing for time, some dressing up as pilgrims or turkeys and others just enjoying a morning workout before heading home to give thanks and watch football.

In addition to selling out the 1,500 registration spots, Eastbay collected $43,000 and 960 pounds of food for Marathon County Hunger Coalition. The dollars raised will go toward the Hunger Coalition’s purchasing of healthy food for area food pantries to supplement the donations from the public.
