From staff reports

The 2022 LowCountry Habitat for Humanity Turkey Trot 5K and Fun Run presented by First Federal Bank, held on Thanksgiving morning, was a joyful success.

Seven hundred and ninety-three people registered for a favorite local tradition. The community event raised almost $40,000 for the local affiliate for Habitat for Humanity, which has five houses under construction or in the design phase in Northern Beaufort County.

The overall winner of the race was Nash Mills, a freshman on the Men’s Cross-Country team at UNC Wilmington and former Beaufort High School athlete. The 18-year-old ran the 5-kilometer race in 16:26.79. In second place was Gavin Moore, and Maxwell Davis took third place overall. They finished in 16:39.33 and 16:45.69, respectively.

LowCountry Habitat for Humanity would like to thank its presenting sponsor, First Federal Bank, for making this event possible for the local community. Contributing sponsors were Chandler Trask Construction, Collins Pest Control, Grayco, Eat Local Beaufort (Saltus, Plums and Hearth), Beaufort Memorial Hospital, Best Western Sea Island Inn, Picklejuice Productions, Grounded Running, Pepsi, BJWSA, and Rain-N-Bagels.
