The Thanksgiving tradition of Gobble Gait in Hastings reached its goal this year. More than $60,000 was raised and 1,600 pounds of food collected for Hastings Family Service in the annual 8K run/walk and 2K fun walk held Thursday morning in downtown Hastings.

"We are close to $300,000 raised in our 10 years," Gobble Gait co-chair Jay Kochendorfer said. "It was an awesome day."

The funds raised were about $5,000 more than 2006. In its 10 years, more than $280,000 has been raised and more than 9,600 pounds of food collected for Hastings Family Service.
