5K on Turkey day set

You can help the hungry on a day when most of us get stuffed with turkey and all the trimmings.

That’s part of the idea behind the annual 5K on Turkey Day event to benefit the local Love Chapel food pantry, which feeds more than 1,000 needy families per month.

The run/walk event begins at 9 a.m. Thursday at the Indiana National Guard Armory, 2160 Arnold St. on Columbus’ north side.

Entry fee is $10, payable at columbuslovechapel.com. Plus, organizers ask participants to bring five nonperishable food items to donate to the pantry at 311 Center St.

Check-in time is at 7:30 a.m.
