Over 50 runners and walkers plus over a dozen volunteers came out on a chilly yet sunny morning for our first ever Turkey Trot. They all began their holiday season by having fun, being healthy, and supporting a wonderful new recreation opportunity in our community. Over $2000 was raised for the SWPRD Campground fund and many more people in the community are now aware of this project. Clark Bishop of Coupeville won the raffle for a turkey that was raised and donated by Joel Gerlach, one of the Park District’s commissioners. Please have a look at the race results and some images from the day and if you were there, please feel free to add your comments about the event below.
