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.
