Hundreds take part in Turkey Trot

WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Hundreds of people trotted off their turkey before they even had a bite.

More than 500 people hit the streets of Wausau on Thursday for the second annual Turkey Trot. The 5K run is sponsored by Eastbay. All the money raised goes to the Marathon County Hunger Coalition.

"It's great to see how many people come out to support such a great event like this, and the energy is just crazy," said Lauren Jones, event organizer. "It makes it well worth it just seeing everyone today."

Newsline 9's Rob Duns and Anna Carrera joined in the race.

Organizers said they hoped to collect close to $10,000 from the race.
