WILMINGTON, DE - Senator Tom Carper will hold true to his holiday tradition Thursday by running a 10K race benefiting muscular sclerosis research in the morning and serving Thanksgiving dinner afterward to some of the most in need in Wilmington.

As he has many times in the past, Carper will be present at the Emmanuel Dining Room to serve roast turkey, stuffing, corn and homemade pumpkin pie.
