The Turkey Trot made its much anticipated return on Wednesday, Nov. 10, as more than 120 fifth-grade students took to the streets in what turned out to be a beautiful fall day.
After a year of not running the race, there was a heightened sense of enthusiasm for students as they prepared to continue the long tradition in the Tonawanda City School District of running the mile-long race. With smiles on their faces, they paced themselves and then pushed to the finish line, proving that they were indeed workout Warriors!
The champions of this year’s race were Rylee Deluca and Mason Shugg.
