Giving back this Holiday Season
What are you doing to help fight the bulge, this Thanksgiving? With each approaching holiday season there is a sense of urgency to keep off all those extra lbs. from all the seasonal parties! Well this year how about your give back to the community, when you are fighting those excess pounds!
Every year Frederick County, MD hosts a Turkey Trot, 1k and a 5k races that help those in need. Thanksgiving morning people gather in the streets of historic downtown Frederick and race around Baker’s Park, in efforts to burn off some extra calories, in anticipation for Thanksgiving dinner. With each year this race becomes bigger and bigger, no thousands are expected to turn out. The events are not limited to adults only; many of your younger patients participate in the 1k, fun run!
