David Goldwasser, Turkey Trot Race Director/ Marisa Fund, thanks all volunteers again for their unselfish work and time this past Thanksgiving morning. The Turkey Trot yielded $119,500 in proceeds!
This total does not include the final donations that will come from the Modell’s coupon and the total number of pounds of non-perishable food donated on race day for the People to People food bank (probably well over a 1,000 pounds).

Statement from Rich Fernandez, Turkey Trot Volunteer Coordinator:
A heartfelt thank you to all our AMAZING volunteers who went above and beyond the call of duty today to make sure the Turkey Trot was a successful event in spite of the extremely frigid temperatures. Your actions today verifies what I already know; our Turkey Trot volunteers are the most committed and skilled volunteers. Without your support, an event of this magnitude could not happen you are the backbone of this great event.
I will email you community service letters no later than 11/30/18. Please contact me via email if you do not receive your community service letter by the 30th.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help today!
Have a wonderful and safe Holiday,
Statement from David Goldwasser, Trot Director:
Even though we had to endure record-setting cold, each and every volunteer stepped up for children with cancer. Whether you separated bananas, or lugged water, cheered on runners or moved garbage pails...every little thing you did so well made our event a major success.
I am so grateful for your help...you made me look good through your tireless efforts and even though you may not realize it, those seemingly small things done with great love, end up helping us to raise large amounts of money for the little kids who need it most!
So, thank you all...have happy, healthy holidays and keep the volunteer spirit in your heart...it makes the world a better place.
Thank you, and I hope to see you all for the 28th Annual Turkey Trot for The Marisa Fund next November.
Director of The Marisa Fund and the 5 Mile Turkey Trot
