Thanksgiving Trot raises record amount for LeBaron family


The annual Marcia Walters Memorial Thanksgiving Trot again saw more than 1,000 people turn out on a drizzly Thanksgiving morning to bring sunshine to a local family.

The annual one mile and 5K runs raised a record $109,000 for the LeBaron family of Aledo. Carter LeBaron, 13, is being treated for T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and funds raised will help with hospital and medical expenses, and supplement lost income.

The Nov. 24 race was the 11th annual such event that has helped local families who are experiencing catastrophic medical crises.
