Two Successful
Thanksgiving Day Events!


Community Thanksgiving Feast

Due to COVID-19, the Community Thanksgiving Feast was a curbside, carry-out event. The event was a success, serving more than 800 meals. Despite COVID-19, LUM was able to offer a wonderful holiday meal to the community and continue a 34 year tradition.

Thank you to the donors, sponsors, volunteers & staff who made this event possible. 


Turkey Trot 5K Run

The Turkey Trot 5K Run was a fun Thanksgiving morning run raising money for vital programs for our community. Despite COVID-19, LUM was able to offer a safe, LIVE running event, following a plan approved by the Tippecanoe County Health Department.

The Live Runners wore face masks and has staggered starting times (7:40, 8, 8:20, 8:40, and 9 a.m.) to keep runners at a very safe distance from each other.

LUM also offered a Virtual Race allowing runners run on their own, track their race on our app, an post photos.
