Fred's Gobble Jog

It's that time of year again, I am participating in SOME’s Thanksgiving Day Trot for Hunger on November 28th.  (I'm trying on a new name for this year's run, let me know what you think in the comments) Every time I've done this I've been astounded by people's generosity, so I feel an obligation to keep the momentum going. 

Thanksgiving day is the perfect opportunity to give thanks for our good fortune, as demonstrated by the custom of spending time with family and friends.  Many people choose to volunteer as a way to spread some of their fortune and blessings to others on that day.  Unfortunately, family and other Thanksgiving obligations and activities don't permit all those that would be so inclined to engage in volunteer efforts to be a blessing to others.  This is where I come in.  I'll do the work for you while you are enjoying your day.  You will have done a good deed while enjoying your friends and family.  A win win.  **Please Note - If you're unable to spend time with loved ones and are in the DC area, you are invited to join me for the run. Just let me know and we can make arrangements.**

As has become custom, I am once again offering prizes to selected donors. Again, the largest donor will receive a prize as a huge thank you.  I promise I will put some thought into your gift. I will also select an additional donor at random to receive a thank you gift (also a good one) once the original fundraising goal has been met.

Some information about the run provided by SOME:

SOME's Trot for Hunger is a 5K run and family walk held on Thanksgiving Day to benefit the homeless and poor in Washington, DC.  The Trot provides essential support for SOME's programs for the poor and homeless and helps ensure that hungry District residents have a hot meal on Thanksgiving Day and every other day of the year.

You can help me support people in need by making a tax-deductible contribution in my name or by registering to participate in this year's Trot for Hunger. Your support makes a world of difference in the life of a child or adult in need.
