Fasse bldgs. was thrilled to sponsor the 11th annual Wrightsville Beach Turkey trot this year! There were a record number of runners this year....over 2,ooo participants! This annual event on Thanksgiving morning is held by the Cape Fear Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit that raises money to provide affordable housing for those in need.
“All of the proceeds we raise are going to build a Habitat home in 2016," Jessica Loeper, Habitat's Director of Communications and Outreach, said. "So a family in our community will have a home sponsored by the Turkey Trot, and everyone that participated in the Turkey Trot will actually have the opportunity to volunteer and build that house as well.”
It was a beautiful day! We had a great time at the race, and so glad to support such a wonderful cause and burn off some of those pre-Thanksgiving calories! We hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend!
