CHAMPION Kiwanis sponsor Turkey Trot race

Published: Wed, November 7, 2001 @ 12:00 a.m.

About $9,000 was raised last year for charitable causes.

CHAMPION -- The 23rd annual Turkey Trot sponsored by Warren Kiwanis Club will be Nov. 22 at Kent State University Trumbull Campus on Mahoning Avenue.

The 5-mile race starts at 9:45 a.m. and a 2-mile fun walk/run will be at 9 a.m. Both start and finish at the campus.

Awards will be presented in Lecture Hall A of the administration building after the races.

Preregistration is $13 per person and includes a long-sleeve shirt if payment is received by Nov. 16. Race-day registration is an additional $2.

"This is our club's largest fund-raising activity each year," said Greg Yurco, Turkey Trot chairman. "The race is a Thanksgiving tradition for many, and is the largest such event in the tri-county area."

Last year: More than 1,000 runners participated last year, with $9,000 raised for charitable donations through registration fees and corporate sponsorships.

For entry forms or more information, call Yurco at (330) 702-5113 or visit the Kiwanis Web site to download an entry form at www.Warrenkiwanis.homestead.com.

Entry forms are also available at area YMCA and YWCA locations, as well as Second Sole in Boardman.
