Run to Feed the Hungry

Happy Thanksgiving! It is usually the Daffin family tradition to run (or I should say walk) in the annual Run to Feed the Hungry race on Thanksgiving morning. This year was the 14th annual and what a turn out. Unofficial numbers were around 22,ooo participants. Officials hope to raise $500,000 in this year's event. The race originated in 1994 and was started by Gaylord Walker in conjunction with the Sacramento Food Bank. The inaugrual event had 800 participants. The race is a great success and shows the generosity of those that are thankful for what they have and are willing to share with those less fortunate. If you live in the Sacramento area, you should plan on running (or walking) next year. Hope to see you in 2008!
