DONATIONS NEEDED FOR THE ANNUAL PAUL “EARTHQUAKE” MOORE TURKEY RUN
Philadelphia Community Activist Paul “Earthquake” Moore, needs donations of turkey and stuffing and running enthusiasts as well, to participate in his annual run down South Broad Street and food drive, Both events are to help reduce hunger among families during the holiday season.
What started as a one man jog-a-thon 10 years ago, has become the Paul “Earthquake” Moore Annual Celebrity Turkey Run, and will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2010. Quake, winner of the Wrice-Campbell Award for Neighborhood Safety, has asked for all Philadelphians to join him and support this effort. Deputy Police Commissioner Stephen Johnson, a longtime run supporter, will lead this year’s trek with Tia Gray and her fellow employees at Nova Care. In addition Moore will host his second annual, 24-hour food-a-thon drive the weekend before the run. Stop by, socialize and party while you donate.
The event will have live entertainment, a DJ and more in the parking lot at McDonalds, Grays Ferry Avenue, beginning at noon on Saturday, November 13 and ending at noon on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010.
