Turkey Strut

Thursday morning's Turkey Strut was an absolute hit! The wonderful crowd and beautiful weather made for an overwhelmingly special event. Once again, it served as a great reminder to Jen of how God is using her friends and family to help support her through this journey to a cure. And, once again, how could we ever thank all of you who helped make it such a huge success enough.   

Here are a few pics documenting the memorable morning...

Jennifer had a lovely Thanksgiving with Matt and our mom. I'll leave you with a video message she sent me the night before the race. Happy Holidays, and thank you all again for making Thursday not only possible but hugely successful as well. (Matt threw his back out trying to master the turkey 'strut' you'll see at the end of the video. Moral- leave the real struttin' to the turkeys!)


  1. We loved being a part of the Turkey Strut! What an amazing testament to you two. Tell Matt that "Turkey Strut" strangely resembles the Triple Dum-Dum Walrus. Love to all of the Fowlers and Samples!!!

  2. I had a great time at the Turkey Strut. That was my very first 5K, and I finished in just under my goal time!! (I even walked a little.) Sending good thoughts your way.
