Despite the 30-degree temperatures, we had more than 200 runners, walkers and trotters for our annual Turkey Trot on Saturday. Including all of the kids who did the fun run, we had a record number of participants! We owe a huge thanks to our race sponsors: Adamson Ramsey Homes, Artificial Greens & Lawns, CKO Kickboxing Maplewood, The Fox & Falcon and the South Orange PBA.
This year’s race honored our late friend and Seth Boyden educator Joann Montilus, who lost her battle with breast cancer four years ago. Our teachers helped raise more than $600 in memory of Joann for Mary’s Place by the Sea, a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer. Joann loved spending time there.
Thanks to Maureen Davenport for organizing the event and to all of our volunteers and participants who made the event possible.
