Happy Hour: Team Re-Runs Race to Encourage Teammate with Down Syndrome

A middle school cross country team in North Carolina is showing that you are never too fast, too slow or too kind. The team got a new member this year; a middle school boy with down syndrome. He has put in the time, alongside the rest of his team and they are by his side the whole time, even when he is the last one to cross the finish line.

Last week, the boys ran their race and after they finished, they ran back to escort their teammate, Davis across the finish line.

His mom says it's a good reminder to everyone. You never know what someone else's struggle is, so always be kind.

The Capital City Rescue Mission is prepping for it's big Thanksgiving meal. This year they expect to serve more than 2,000 meals.

As well as serving the big meal tomorrow,  the mission and all the volunteers will host a service, staff a holiday café with games and a Healthy Hearts Fair which will provide free flu shots, blood pressure checks and heart health education to anyone and everyone.

Finally, more than 150 vehicles took part in the annual convoy for the "Capital Region Toys for Tots", a holiday charity drive. The convoy took off from Ballston Spa to SPAC on Sunday. The effort is spear-headed by the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office. The Capital Region Toys for Tots will be giving out toys to 160,000 local children.
