Giving Thanks and Turkey Trot Anyone?

Turkey Trot Tradition in Buffalo, NY
and what we are Thankful for!  


Hey there ~ Can you believe it is already almost the middle of November? We had our FIRST huge snowfall this week - and it keeps coming...

so it's starting to feel a little like Christmas in Buffalo - rather than Thanksgiving!!  Next week is the annual Turkey Trot that our family gets so excited about every year.  I am personally hoping this 5 feet of snow melts quickly and it's at least 50 degrees on the day of the race!  

The annual YMCA Turkey Trot is one of the largest in the country with 14,000 people registering each year.  

If you happen to be in Buffalo, NY on Thanksgiving morning... be sure to come down and cheer on the Turkey Trotters for the 118th Annual YMCA Turkey Trot and Food Bank Fundraiser.

A little trot history for those of you who are not
from Buffalo, NY
This race is the the oldest consecutively run footrace in North America!
Grab your friends, family, coworkers and run, walk, or jog the 8k route between the Delaware Family Y and the Buffalo Convention Center on Thanksgiving morning.

Buffalo is the city of good neighbors ~ Once again the YMCA is teaming up with the Food Bank of WNY and Channel 2 to help collect non-perishable items for our fellow neighbors in need. Donations will be accepted at all YMCA Buffalo Niagara branches beginning November 1st. There will also be bins available on race day. Help us exceed last year's amount of over 4,600 pounds of food! 

This race is a great day - not only can you do some great people watching - but it's a time to give to the Food Bank of WNY and get together with family and friends. 

Thanksgiving is also a time to remember what we are thankful for.  I try to teach my students that it's important to be thankful for what we have, NOT what we don't have.  I truly am blessed and am thankful for so many things.  



So we would love to hear what your Thanksgiving traditions are.  Do you do something fun on Thanksgiving?  Do you cook, go shopping, or just spend quality time with your family?   Please share in the comments below.
