Food collected during Turkey Trot

Coordinated School Health's 2nd Annual Turkey Trot was this past Saturday, November 11, 2017. The event was held to benefit CSH's Back Pack Program. Participants were asked to bring non-perishable food items for a donation to The Back Pack Program. "There were generous donations of food and funds made to our program at the Turkey Trot thanks to individuals, businesses, and civic groups", said Elise Driver, Coordinated School Health. "All of the food donated today will be going into our Christmas boxes that we will be delivering to every family on our Back Pack list this year."

"We had 75 participants this year. That ended up being a compiled 230 plus miles that were walked/ran in an hour and a half! That is amazing!" "We would like to thank everyone that came out to the Turkey Trot this year, whether you walked, worked, or donated, we are so grateful for this show of support for The Back Pack Program. This program would not be possible if it were not for our wonderful community."
