The Roanoke Rescue Mission loved the photos we took last year so they have asked us to come back again this year on Thanksgiving morning for the 8th Annual Drumstick Dash.
This is a major benefit activity of the Roanoke Rescue Mission and is a major photo opportunity for Exposure Roanoke to perform a public service for the Mission. Please select one of the 15 locations below and reserve your spot by adding a comment below.
Here is a copy of our official invitation:
"There will be over 15,000 participants - runners, walkers, babies in strollers, dogs, family groups, church groups, volunteers holding signs & banners, and street side musicians - dressed in running gear and costumed up as well!

Thank you for participating.

...please reply to this Meetup by commenting below to indicate which location you would like to go to for photos.
It is just that simple: once you have taken the photos just select your favorite 25 photos then put them on disc and bring them to the Rescue Mission Lobby (NO Model Realeases are required) so that they can be posted to the Rescue Mission website. Thanks for supporting this important public service.
