Greenwich Alliance for Education to Hold ‘Turkey Trot’


All runners and walkers are invited to participate in the Greenwich Alliance for Education’s 7th Annual Turkey Trot, to be held on Saturday, Nov. 25. The one-mile fun run/walk will start at 9:30 a.m. and the 5K will start at 10. The event takes place at Arch Street Teen Center, 100 Arch St.

Those interested can register online at greenwichalliance.org. Registration fee is $30 per adult ($40 on race day) and $12 per child 14 and under ($15 race day). T-shirts and goody bags will be given to runners registered by Wednesday, Nov. 15.

All proceeds from the Turkey Trot will benefit the Alliance’s programs that aim to foster educational success for Greenwich Public School students. The Alliance has three main programs: “Going Places With Books,” early literacy program delivered aboard their Storymobile; “Tuning In To Music,” free instrumental music lessons for students unable to afford this opportunity; “Reaching Out Grants,” grants awarded to fund innovative programs in our schools. Any local business interested in a sponsorship is encouraged to contact Julie Faryniarz at 203-340-2323 or julie@greenwichalliance.org
