GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - "Burning" with the desire to get behind a good cause this Thanksgiving? This week you have two chances to help give local families something to smile about.

Nick N' Willy's pizza on Horizon Drive will donate profits from its sales Monday to the Grand Junction Firefighters Local 2808 union -- which will then use the funds to help the families of fallen firefighters and other worthy causes. The fundraiser runs until 9 p.m.

You can also help Local 2808 by taking part in their annual Turkey Trot 5K race. The event kicks off at 9 a.m. Thanksgiving at Soar Physical Therapy (2497 Power Road). For more information about the event, or to learn how you can register, click on the link below listed under Related Links.
