GORHAM — Want to work up an appetite before the big meal?

On Nov. 28, the 5K Turkey Trot/Walk/Waddle will be held in Gorham, and pedestrians of all abilities are welcome.

Registration takes place at 169 Main St. from 8:45-9:15 a.m., and the 5K begins at 9:30 a.m.

Immediately before the 5K, a loop around the school will take place for all Tiny Turkeys.

This event serves many purposes, but most importantly it is an opportunity for people to be active, share community connectedness and gather food for those in need.

The mostly flat course is stroller and pet friendly.

For those who happen to live along the route (Church St, Promenade, Bangor, and Main), porch cheerleaders are appreciated.

Instead of a fee, non perishables are being collected. Canned fruit/veggies, snack items for lunch boxes, pasta, tomato sauce, peanut butter, pancake mix, cereal, instant oatmeal and tuna fish are most needed.
