GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Thanksgiving day means food and family, but last week in Glens Falls, it also meant clocking some miles and burning some calories for a cause before coming home for the traditional meal. At the Open Door Mission, it was the day of the first-ever Gobble Wobble 5k run/walk.

787 runners, including 150 same-day signups, came to run or walk in support of those experiencing homelessness in the area that the Open Door Mission serves. Sneaker-clad participants traveled from the mission and circled through the city before returning.

“It felt like the North Country was giving the Mission a giant hug in the form of showing up, sponsoring, and volunteering,” said coordinator Matthew Waddilove in a release on Tuesday.

The Gobble Wobble raised about $18,000. That money will create 818 nights of shelter, as well as meals and showers, for homeless individuals in Glens Falls.
