Turkey Trot Overview

On Wednesday, Nov 6, all Greenbrook students will participate in the Turkey Trot, formerly known as the Fun Run. Students will run around the field with their grade for 20-30 minutes in a fun event to see how many laps they can achieve. There will be a DJ, warm-ups led by Mr. Tuffli, water and post-race snacks provided to students. All family members are welcome to watch. In the month leading up to the event, students are encouraged to seek pledges from family and friends for their running effort. The pledges go to the Eagle Fund, which funds art, music, library, reading intervention, classroom aides, technology and other supplies needed for the school. The Turkey Trot is the second largest fundraiser for the Eagle Fund this year.
