This is the 8th Annual Thanksgiving Wattle 5K Run/Walk in Grove City, Ohio on Thanksgiving Day Morning, November 28, 2019, 9am. The 5K Run/Walk was established to allow families and friends to come together on this special day to celebrate and give thanks for life and all that comes with it. 5K Runner and walker finishers get long sleeve t-shirts, chip timing, medals, pumpkin pies and finish line refreshments. There is a Children’s Run. There is a 100 yard event for athletes who are developmentally or physically challenged. There is also a 13 mile Rotisserie Roll Bike Ride for bicycling enthusiasts. The 5K Route is a police protected course featuring live music on the majestic Buckeye Parkway. We have selected the Grove City Food Pantry as our local charity to support. We help collect food and raise monies for the hungry of the community. Last year this event raised over $25,000 for the Grove City Food Pantry on Columbus Street. This is approximately 25% of their annual operations budget.
