Thanksgiving morning, San Jose, CA

Thanksgiving Day -- family, food, fun. Time to reflect on our bounties. Time to share with others.

Participating in the 5th annual Silicon Valley Turkey Trot was a wonderful way to start the day. To date, this event has raised over $750,000 for charities, including the Santa Clara County Family Health Foundation, the Housing Trust of Santa Clara County, and Second Harvest Food Bank. 9500 participants were expected this year (our bibb numbers were 10,732 & 10,733), so the funds will increase.

How wonderful to be able to share a beautiful day, in a lovely city, in the company of happy, generous people.
