(La Porte, IN) - Hundreds of people worked up an appetite for their Thanksgiving meal in La Porte at the annual Turkey Trot held yesterday morning.
People gathered outside City Hall before the 5K run-and-walk through Beechwood Golf Course and back. Nick Otis, one of the event organizers, said about 550 people showed up.
“We’re at a record. It’s probably one of the biggest 5K races in La Porte County,” Otis said.
The proceeds go to the La Porte Education Development Foundation, founded 35-years ago. The group provides additional sources of learning for students in the La Porte School Corporation.
“We have a lot of great sponsors that help make it possible,” Otis said.
