Trotters raise thousands for Ballard Food Bank

2010 Turkey Trotters helped raise a record amount for the Ballard Food Bank.

The 4th annual Thanksgiving 5k run/walk/jog brought in $26,000 for the local non-profit, Nancy McKinney the executive director of the food bank tells us. Although organizers aren’t sure about the number of participants because of the weather, McKinney tells us that those who did show up seemed to have a great time. “It was a fun event with a lot of smiling faces,” she says.

I was interested in this because of the headline. It seems that someone doesn’t know what words they’ve used for their headline.

“Trotters” is the English word for Chiterlings. I was wondering how pig guts could have a fund-raiser.

I was interested in the amount of money they raised. 26k for a small neighborhood event…? If that number is even close to right, you guys deserve a standing ovation!

I walked the “trot” this year, and despite the icy/slippery walks – was delighted with the turnout. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” I’m delighted to participate in a local event that just MIGHT make the world a little better for a few.
