Adair County residents go the "extra mile" in support of the community

The Adair County YMCA hosted a Turkey Trot 5-K run in support of the United Way campaign. The United Way holds an annual campaign to raise money for 13 partner agencies in Kirksville and surrounding areas. The goal is to raise $250,000 to support those agencies in the coming year, so far they've raised over $100,000.

â??The YMCA sponsors this run annually. The annual Turkey Trot is a great way for families to get out and be active and get in shape and support the community at the same time,â?? says John Dungan, Executive Director of United Way N.E. Missouri.
