The annual Turkey Trot Fun Run/Walk on Thanksgiving morning is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Bedford Food Pantry. It's also lots of fun for the participants and support staff, as evidenced by last year's record-breaking 274 runners/walkers. Organizer Rich Hamilton sends this info about this year's event:
