CAPE CORAL, Fla.-- The Fort Myers Track Club's 31st Annual 5K Turkey Trot will be run Thanksgiving morning in Cape Coral.
The race begins on Southeast 6th Street and Del Prado Blvd. in front of the Cape Coral Hospital.
The proceeds from this year's Turkey Trot are being donated to Cape Coral Hospital's Emergency Room expansion project.
These funds will be used to help equip new pediatric treatment rooms in the expanded ER.
Cape Coral Hospital's emergency room sees almost as many children as The Children's Hospital's emergency room in Ft. Myers, yet there are currently no dedicated emergency pediatric treatment rooms at Cape Coral Hospital.
The new Weigner Taeni Center for Emergency Services at Cape Coral Hospital will contain 3 pediatric rooms for children.
