Letters to the Editor

In response to Peter Keefe’s Dec. 1 letter “Inconvenience becomes annoyance:” How dare hundreds of people take part in a healthy activity! And all to benefit charity—how awful!

Any turkey trot is so much more than a smug “advertising of one’s righteousness.” They raise tens of thousands of dollars for local nonprofits at a crucial point in the year. And let me tell you firsthand - runners don’t do what they do because they want people to look. Instead of grumbling about minor inconveniences, we should be thankful there is an opportunity to unite and do a good deed on a holiday.
