On Saturday, November 15, 2014 The New School's recreation department held its 5th Annual "5K Turkey Trot" and we were thrilled to be the beneficiary this year. Keeping with their charitable Thanksgiving tradition, the group's 3.1 mile Run/Walk was held at Pier 84 along the Hudson River.

We are thankful to all of the participants (human and puppies!) who braved the freezing early morning temperatures to raise funds to benefit St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters. Their combined efforts raised $800 that will allow us to purchase turkeys for the food pantry and soup kitchen locations we help to support.

Congratulations to MacLean O'Donell, Adiel Fernandez, Alan Peralta, Radford Lathan, Marianne Le Nabat, Susanna Treacy and all the door prize winners! Each of you finished strong and truly gave back in a great way ahead of the holidays.

Let the "turkey trotting" games begin! We just love that great t-shirt!

These two are all smiles for the 5th Annual Turkey Trot today! Here is the course map, beginning and ending at Pier 84.

This trotter is ready for business! Aww! This cutie-patootie is out here joining us too!
