Runners lace up for Lynchburg’s virtual Turkey Trot
LYNCHBURG, Va. – The pandemic forced Lynchburg’s annual Turkey Trot to go virtual, but that didn’t stop runners from keeping a Thanksgiving tradition alive. “You run, you have fun with your family, and then you have a big feast,” said 10-year-old Asher Willis. “We’re able to support each other and cheer for each other and just have a fun thanksgiving tradition, even though it’s a much different year this year,” said Keith. Their goal was not the finish line, but to help HumanKind, an organization serving families through dozens of programs. Karol expects the organization to raise half that, as their list of families in need is at 300 and counting.
