Weekend Spotlight: Turkey Chase for a Cause [VIDEO]

Want to warm up for Thanksgiving and support a good cause? Head to the North Cobb area this weekend for the 2012 Acworth Turkey Chase.

This week's Cobb, Douglas and Paulding Weekend & Community Spotlight features a holiday themed event in the North Cobb area.

The 4th Annual Acworth Turkey Chase 5K Fun Run and 2K Walk will be held this Saturday in Historic Downtown Acworth (5K Fun Run at 9 a.m., 2K Walk at 9:15 a.m., and Little Pilgrim Trot at 10 a.m.).

Participants of all ages and abilities can walk, jog or run. Get a head start on that New Year's resolution to shed a few pounds.

If you register on the day of the race, the cost is $30 for the timed run, $20 for the untimed fun run (ages 13 and up) and $10 for the untimed fun run (ages 6-12 years old). Kids who are 5 years old and younger participate for free.
