LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Thanksgiving kicked off a little early with the 2nd Annual Turkey Trot.
The Greater Lake Charles Rotary Club hosted the event.
Proceeds go to scholarships for students at McNeese and SOWELA.
There was a Turkey Trot 5K and Kid-K.
"My favorite part are these kids out here running and having a good time and being healthy," said Race Director, Rick Bateman. "It's a lot of work preparing for this thing, but it's just great seeing these kids having a good time."
Winners in different categories received a frozen Thanksgiving turkey.
