PORT CHESTER -

Families in Port Chester woke up early on Thanksgiving morning for the village's 11th annual Turkey Trot.

Hundreds of runners outside Port Chester High School gobbled their way to the finish line 3 ½ miles away.

Jessica Ramirez brought her kids and her dog to make the trek.

"Life is so short. You should donate to good causes and do the right thing," she says.

The race helped the Tamarack Tower Foundation raise thousands of dollars for scholarships and learning tools at area schools.
