More than 4,000 people got an early start this Thanksgiving on El Paseo in Palm Desert at the Thanksgiving Day 5K benefiting Martha's Village and Kitchen.
News Channel 3 sponsored the event and many on our team raced the 3.1-mile course.
"We're going to raise money for a good cause. Martha's Kitchen and Village does so much for the homeless across our valley and this is the biggest fundraiser of the year for them," said News Channel 3 anchor Peter Daut.
This was the 16th annual Thanksgiving Day 5K. The event took the last two years off due to the pandemic.
