D.H. Robbins Elementary School First Annual Turkey Trot a Success

Gobble! Gobble! Gobble!!!  The November weather turned out to be absolutely perfect, and DHR was the setting for the school's first annual Turkey Trot on Monday, November 24th.  The special event began in the school's auditorium where Coach Cool introduced the student body to Ultrarunner John Geesler.  John shared the details of his awesome running career and then the students and staff headed outside to get busy walking and running.  First, the entire school participated in a wellness walk!  Then, anyone in grades three through five moved on to participate in the race named the Turkey Trot.  Winners of the race were awarded trophies, and all who participated in the race received a colorful turkey trot t-shirt!  Coach Cool would like to thank the generous people and groups who stepped up to the plate to sponsor this incredible event.  This group includes: OESJ Sport Booster Club, DHR PTO, and several private donors.  The racers are already looking forward to next year!
