Sheep Dog Impact Assitance (SDIA) held its 14th Annual Turkey Trot For Heroes Thursday, Nov. 25 in Rogers. The competition started at 9 a.m. and took place at St. Mary's Center for Nonprofit. The event featured a traditional 5K run, a virtual version, and a 1-mile fun run and walk. The Wild Gobbler 5K also offered an additional challenge, with five stops with bodyweight exercise challenges. Each stop honored a fallen service member who died this year. The first stop was for Pea Ridge Officer Kevin Apple, who died in the line of duty in June. "Learning about these heroes and their stories and their bios and what they are truly about. Also seeing the people, and their faces and them having a great time, and a good run and seeing them support the cause makes all the difference because they are amazing men and women that come out to do this on Thanksgiving morning."
