Help Us Feed Families This Holiday Season

October 17, 2011

Before you sit down on Thanksgiving Day to give thanks, grab the family and head over to The Great Turkey Challenge. Strap on your running or walking shoes and help us place turkeys on tables of families in need.

The Great Turkey Challenge is a 5K run/walk fundraising event, presented by H-E-B. Guests can register to participate in the event and support the San Antonio Food Bank’s efforts to place turkeys on the tables of needy families in our area this holiday season. For every $10 generated by the donations, the San Antonio Food Bank will provide one turkey to a needy family.

“Thanksgiving is the one meal of the year where families come together around the dinner table and make memories that last a lifetime. We are trying to create those memories for families in need in our community,” said Eric S. Cooper, President/CEO, San Antonio Food Bank.

Runners, walkers, corporate teams, community groups and families are encouraged to join us on Thursday, November 24. Check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and a staggered race start begins at 8:30 a.m. at the H-E-B Arsenal. Register online today at Volunteer opportunities are also available.

    5k just the thing to work up an appetite. All for a good cause.

    I hope this event has a great turn-out to support a great cause. Kudos to H.E.B. and the San Antonio Food Bank for organizing a public activity like a 5K on Thanksgiving – hopefully it will generate a lot of attention for supporting our food banks and pantries in other communities as well.
