Saturday marked the 10th annual Hill & Harbor Turkey Trot, a chilly but sunny day. Here are the highlights in video and photos. Congratulations to organizer Amy Moore (10 years!), all the participants and the beneficiary, the Glimmer of Hope Foundation, which provides hope and dolls for children facing cancer.
