Parents and siblings came out to cheer on our young runners.
This was the 17th running of the Turkey Run at Riverside Park and the 42nd Turkey Run since its inauguration. Originally, it was run by the 8th grade who circumnavigated the Central Park Reservoir at great speed. The winner received a frozen turkey that he then ceremoniously donated to the Annual Thanksgiving food drive. It was in the 1970s that the responsibility of the tradition shifted to the 2nd Grade, where it continues to reside to this day.
A great time was time had by all! (And every boy enjoyed the chocolate turkey treat that followed at day's end.)
