Retired Bath County School teacher and coach Tim Bailey braves the elements each year on a 52-mile trek to raise funds to help struggling families have an enjoyable holiday. This year, Bailey is joined by fellow runner Shawn Tolle, Bath County High School senior Dalton Caudill and newcomer Joona Hulkkonen in the 21st Annual Tim's Toy Trot for Tots.
The run stretches from the Fayette County Courthouse in Lexington, Kentucky, to the Bath County Courthouse. The event has raised more than $40,000 in its 20-year history. Along the way, other runners join Bailey and embark on the trek. Having runners join in tends to bring a breath of fresh air and helps to complete the task.
Do you traditionally participate in any philanthropic events during the holiday season?
