The holiday season can be tough on an empty stomach. Most food banks and pantries in Colorado are serving up to two hundred families per week at the moment. The demand is high, and the supply is low with most food banks running out of food weekly. Please help out families in need and donate any non-perishable items you can this holiday season. Many food banks are also accepting turkeys. The demand for proteins is highest so if you can spare any type of nut butters or canned beans, it would be much appreciated! You can view a complete list of food banks in Castle Rock (or any Colorado area) at FoodPantries.org.
You can also help this Thanksgiving by participating in Castle Rock’s Annual Turkey Rock Trot! Both runners and walkers are welcome! Race day registration begins at 8.30 AM on Thanksgiving Day at the Douglas County Events Center located at 500 Fairgrounds Drive. The race begins at 9.30 am. The registration fee is $35 and includes a t-shirt and bib. Children under the age of 13 are welcome to participate at no cost. All proceeds will benefit the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. There will also be a canned food drive the day of the race, and participants and spectators are encouraged to bring donations!
Start the day out right and maybe burn some extra calories at the same time! More details and registration information about the Turkey Rock Trot at RockTrot.com!
