“Our goal is to make this a great community event, something fun and healthy to do before the football game and Thanksgiving Day meal,’’ said Chaoui, a breast-cancer survivor who continued to run competitively during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
“The race is growing each day, so we’re still looking for volunteers,’’ she noted.
For details about registration, race times, the course, and number pickup, visit the Wellesley Turkey Trot’s website, www.turkey5.com.
The registration fee is waived for cancer survivors. Also, race volunteers will get free entry to the Miss Santa Holiday 5K, to be held Dec. 15 along the Charles River in Boston.
