Turkey Trot 2015
Thank you to all who came out and spent Thanksgiving morning with us. Turkey Trot 2015 was the biggest & best yet! We had 600 registered participants and 515 finishers. We had dozens of volunteers between our Project ECHO board members, staff family members, high schoolers, middle schoolers, runners, walkers, past participants and ECHO House residents.
We had several sponsors who donated money and services that greatly contributed to the success of this event. BIG THANKS to: Chesapeake Advanced Networking, Tax Depot LLC, DirectMail.com, The Creative Heart, Serenity Acres Treatment Center, Top Hat Party Design, Yoga & Wellness for All, Avan Smith Photography, Huntingtown High School, Calvert County Sheriff Department, Prince Frederick Volunteer Rescue Squad and last but certainly not least, our host: The Arc of Southern Maryland.
Our timing service was provided by Bluepoint Race Management, our award ribbons were provided by Lighthouse Engraving & Signs and our T-shirts were provided by Ad Options Inc.
Congratulations to the winners of each age category, congratulations to everyone who completed the course and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
