Dear Editor                                                                                                       

Despite a Thanksgiving Eve Nor'easter, I am pleased to report that the 6th Annual Chatham Turkey Trot (www.TheChathamTurkeyTrot.org ) was our most successful race ever! The event had more than 750 registered runners and raised more than $19,000 benefiting the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department and the Diabetes Research Institute.

The Turkey Trot continues to offer the Chatham community an opportunity to come together to give thanks for all that we have and to raise funds for those dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of others. We remain grateful for the support of our neighbors, race participants, local businesses, the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department, the Department of Publics Works, the Police Department, the Emergency Squad, as well as our public officials, who have helped to make this a hallmark holiday tradition in Chatham.

I want to express my gratitude to The Chatham Turkey Trot Race Committee for their efforts, including: Jim Connelly, Rob Failla, Ron Icart, Pete Nejes, Ashim Gulati, Jen Kulp, Corrie Thomas, Vin Caracciolo, Tom Tether, Mike Cooney, Pat Murray and Heather Quick. In addition, ChathamSTEM, under the direction of Nabil Mouline, offered their assistance in timing the 5K race this year. It was a great partnership and one we hope to continue in the years to come.

I also want to thank our sponsors, including: Lead Underwriter: Investors Bank; Gold Sponsors: Allstate - A John Hawk Agency; Klas Electrical Contractors; Hickory Wine Cellar; Silver Sponsors: BabyGiftsandGoodies.com, Dreyer's Lumber; Kitchen Intuitions; Kraftmaster Renovations; Shop Rite; Simonfay Landscape Services; The Tee Bag; Bronze Sponsors: The River Grille; Starting Line Sports; Gifts-in-Kind Sponsors: Bradley Funeral Home and YouHere Productions. Please continue to support these businesses in recognition of their support.

So, if you're looking to be a part of a great family holiday tradition, or just want to burn some calories before the big meal, please consider joining us on Thanksgiving Day in 2015.
