The Waukon Wellness Center hosted its fifth annual “Turkey Trot” 5K Run and Walk Thanksgiving morning, November 22. Approximately 110 participants (pictured below at the starting line the day of the event) took part in the event, with first-place finishers in five of the 12 age categories receiving a frozen turkey (indicated by an asterisk [*] in the list below) and the top three placewinners in each age category taking home medals to commemorate their effort. The event was held to advocate wellness in the local community and also as a fundraiser for the community tennis court project, raising $1,200 for that cause. The top entries in each age division at the annual event are pictured above and listed as follows:
