Our friend Jim Brehio, along with our Coach Mike Lawrence as members of the Birch Hill Striders running club, started the Gardner to Baldwinville Turkey Trot 40 years ago. the only awards were homemade pies that their wife’s and mothers baked. The Turkey trot always finishes in front of the American Legion, were runners and walkers enjoy the warmth in the American Legion hall.
This same American Legion Post is holding a “virtual 5k” in October to raise funds to buy winter clothes and shoes for Templeton and Phillipston elementary school kids that are less fortunate or facing hardships due to lack of resources.
The American Legion post members are working with New Balance running shoes at their factory store in Lawrence Mass. Giving the post a 40—50% on close out kids shoes. The highest price shoes are $59.99 dropping down to $39.99 and $29.99, before the discount. Your entry fee will enable them to buy one shoe.
Have a friend sign up with you and they can buy a new pair of shoes.
Please,help them out by entering and running
the Operation: It takes a village Virtual 5K.
Attached is an entry form and more information.
