Runners lace up their shoes to help students at an Oklahoma High School.
Today was the first annual “Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk” hosted by the Jay Education Foundation. Participants could have a team of up to ten people compete or run on their own.Money raised from the event goes toward the organization’s scholarship funds.Last year, they were able to award scholarships to nearly forty students. One of the foundation’s board member’s says that she is thankful for all of the support from the town.
“This is an amazing community. We pull together for everything. There are just so many workers who pile in droves just to help out. It’s pretty neat. I would hate to live in a big city because i love the help that you get from a small town.” says Coordinator Jodi Waeckerle
Next month the Jay Education Foundation will be hosting its annual Holiday Home Tour Fundraiser.
