Over 100 people ventured out on a chilly Thanksgiving morning for the first annual Turkey Trot 5K. The fundraiser garnered $3,200 for Heartland Homes, whose six group homes serve 62 clients and employ 60 people. The race course – in the shape of a turkey – started and finished at Essentia Health clinic. “We know most people are visiting grandma and looking for something to do. They know they’re going to overeat,” said Bill Simpson, executive director of Heartland Homes. He thanked everyone who participated and volunteered in the inaugural event. “It definitely will be a tradition,” he said.
