BOISE - A lot of people got up early, laced up their running shoes, and headed to downtown Boise on Thanksgiving morning for an event that helps the hungry and homeless.
It's also a chance to wear a turkey hat in public.
We're talking about the annual Turkey Day 5K.
Along with raising cash and food for the Boise Rescue Mission, the fun run has become a tradition that brings families and friends together.
"It sort of justifies everything you're going to do later - you know, eating and drinking and laying around watching TV," participant Tracy Rowe said.
KTVB was among the event sponsors.
