The annual Turkey Run raised $22,100 for the West Shore Christmas Hamper fund.

The goal for the annual fundraiser was $15,000 to make sure there was a turkey (or another main course) on every table in the West Shore this holiday season.

More than 50 Canadian Forces sailors, divers, spouses, friends and West Shore volunteers associated with the Fleet Dive Unit (Pacific) toured the streets in the Dec. 1 event.

The hamper society will provide for about 650 families on the West Shore this winter.

The third annual Turkey Run was in honour of the long-time volunteer Karl Kavanaugh who died of cancer in February.
