Some people burned calories-- for a good-- cause before sitting down for their Thanksgiving meals.

More than 5,000 runners took part in this year's 33rd Annual Turkey Trot. People could run, walk or compete in the timed 8K run.

The Lincoln Park charity raised food and money for the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Organizers say they expect to collect up to 10,000 pounds of food.
