The nights might be getting longer, but that is no reason to hibernate this fall! In between your studies at the Harvest English Institute, we think that there is nothing better to refresh your brain than getting out and exploring the local area around your campus.

Held on Thanksgiving morning, residents gather in Downtown Los Angeles to run and walk the 5k or 10k Turkey Trot route.
In support of a local charity, the Midnight Mission, not only will you be burning calories this Thanksgiving, you will also be helping to support this fantastic cause that helps the homeless.
