On a day linked with rest and relaxation, more than 100 people met in Hanover to run or walk more than 3 miles in support of the Hanover Food Shelf.
The second annual Hanover Thanksgiving Day 5K Run or Walk began at the Hanover Fire Station and ended at the Hanover Historic Bridge. The event resulted in "generous" cash and food donations, delivered to the Hanover Food Shelf Friday.
"We have lots to be thankful for... a great community, family, and friends!" stated the event posting on the City of Hanover's Facebook page.
Hanover Mayor Martin Waters coordinated the event.
"There are a few other 5Ks that occur on Thanksgiving Day, but ours is free, which makes it unique," Waters said. "We had really nice weather and the Hanover Food Shelf was very grateful for the generous donations."
Last year, the first Thanksgiving Day 5K kicked off in commemoration of the new County Road 19 trail, he added.
