5K Walk & Run Fundraiser Sat, Nov 22

Details at: http://www.westboroughturkeytrot.org/

The Westborough Turkey Trot will be held on Saturday November 22, 2014 at 9am. It is designed to be a community-wide event being held as a major fundraiser for technology initiatives at the Westborough Public Schools. It is a first of its kind collaborative effort with support from all of the parent groups at our schools, along with SEPAC, WEF, Westborough High School Boosters and the Westborough Fine Arts Education Association. We hope this will become an annual event in support of our schools.

The 5K Walk/Run is a loop course starting and ending at Westborough High School. The race is geared towards families and friends so feel free to grab a buddy or your kids and walk or run with us. There will be water stations and cheering sections along the route and fun activities at the High School during and after the race.

Following the 5K Race, while the parents and adult runners are cooling down, Athletic Revolution is sponsoring a Kids' Fun Run on the High School track. There will be races for kids from 3 years to 11 years broken down into heats by age groups. This race is great way to get our youngest kids active and to promote health and fitness in a super-fun way!

Please do not hesitate to contact us at turkeytrot@westboroughk12.org, if you feel you can volunteer to help out or contribute to our race in any way.
