WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Thousands burned off those pre-thanksgiving calories with the Wrightsville Beach Turkey Trot Thursday morning. Temperatures were cold but they ran it all for a good cause!
Runners were able to do either a 5K or a one mile course around the Wrightsville Beach loop.
The event is in support of the Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity.
Organizers says for the past several years, the turkey trot has raised enough funds to build an entire house for a local family to purchase on terms they can afford.
