SACRAMENTO -- The 23rd Annual Run to Feed the Hungry kicked off early this morning in East Sacramento.

This year's participation numbers surpassed last year's record. There were 29,002 people who ran to feed the hungry, making it the largest Thanksgiving morning run in the country.

All proceeds benefit the Sacramento Food Bank, an organization that provides food for families in need.

While many went to beat their personal records, others enjoyed the 5K or 10K walk in their turkey costumes.

At the finish line, Roseville's Quincey Clark proposed to his girlfriend Yvette Enriquez of three years. After running the race, she was looking for a banana. Instead she got a ring.

She said yes.
