Dear Editor:

After careful consideration, The Douglas Run/Walk for the Cure, Turkey Trot, will not take place this year.

The reason being is that I understand the hardship of donating to this cause every year. That being said, it costs upwards of $12,000.00 to fund the Turkey Trot. We need this money to continue helping our local residents that are fighting cancer.

I want to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the organizations, businesses, and friends that have continued to donate throughout the year. Word of mouth is our best advertisement.

The Douglas Run/Walk for the Cure is still providing funds to cancer patients. We are here for the community. We have taken a year off from having the Turkey Trot, but we have not taken a year off from helping cancer patients, especially those in need.

The Douglas Run/Walk for the Cure wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless everyone.

Linda Gomez

President, Douglas Run/Walk for the Cure
