Run for a Cause

"Fast Before the Feast" raises funds for local food shelves.

Looking forward to that juicy turkey with all the delicious fixings on Thanksgiving? Well, if you participate in the “Fast Before the Feast” run put on by Tri Fitness, you can help make sure lots of other folks will eat well, too.

The race begins at Tri Fitness (1340 Highway 96 E, White Bear Lake), and includes a 10K, 5K and a half-mile fun run for kids; registration opens at 6:30 a.m., and the 10K starts at 8 a.m., 5K at 8:15 a.m. and the kids’ run at 9:15 a.m. Jerry MacNeil will make race announcements at this annual event, and all proceeds go to local food shelves. Donate a bag of non-perishable food items and receive a coupon from Caribou Coffee. With food items and monies brought in last year, Tri Fitness was able to donate 10,000 pounds of food!!

Registration can be completed online, or in person the morning of the event; price depends on which race you are running and sign-up date. For more information, go to
