Evansville Rescue Mission's eighth annual Drumstick Dash is the run/walk where participants can move their feet so others can eat! Benefiting their annual Thanksgiving food basket giveaway, the Gobbler Gathering, the Drumstick Dash will take place at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 16. ERM’s Drumstick Dash will be starting and finishing at downtown Evansville’s C.K.
