Moore, who is the executive director of Community Against Pushers of Southwest Philadelphia, said he plans to start his 10-mile run at 73rd Street and Pascohall Avenue. He will end at City Line Avenue. Moore said he will wear black and white to represent the fight for hunger. Moore, who is 32, said that before the run he goes door-to-door asking for donations and sponsors. He said he has been doing the jog-a-thon since 1981. "I need everyone's support I can get," he said. The turkeys will be distributed at 1 p.m. on Saturday, after he completes his run. He said they will be given to families he knows or families that are referred to him by other organizations. Moore said he received the Spirit of Philadelphia award for Community Service from WCAU Channel 10 in 1983 and 1989. In 1990, he said, he was one of 100 nominees for Citizen of the Year of Philadelphia. Donations can be mailed to Moore at CAP, 7001 Woodland Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, 19142. -- Sandi Feuerstein
