Over 2,000 participate in annual Niles 'Thanksgiving Day Run'

Niles, Mich. Thursday's festivities brought together friends and family for a delicious, hot turkey.

But the morning brought thousands of people braving the cold to give back to their community in another way.

Over 2,000 participants from around the Michiana area registered for the 32nd annual Thanksgiving Day Run, hosted by the Niles YMCA.

The funds raised were given to the Strong Kids campaign which provides opportunities for children to participate in programs that don't restrict them based on their financial opportunities.

The event gave participants a reason to both run and give.
