Turkeys say, “Gobble, gobble, gobble.” Turkeys remind us of Thanksgiving. So in North Seattle, the Green Lake Gobble 5K (5 kilometers) is the name of a special race before Thanksgiving. Rose Wetzel is running in the race. She is dressed like a turkey, but she runs very fast. She is the fastest woman runner in the race.

But the race is not just for fun. Rose and over a 1,000 other people will bring cans of food to the race and also give money. It’s Thanksgiving time, so the food and money will help poor men, women and children. This year the race will be on Sunday, November 24.
