Turkey Trot, CSD StyleÊ
Submitted By Debbie Ayres
Mother Nature threw in a few obstacles this year as California School for the Deaf students prepared for their 15th annual Turkey Trot. On the scheduled day, Thursday, November 21st, rain and wind caused a postponement and the following day, a fire alarm threatened to cancel activities again. However, the Eagles, true to their school mascot, soared through it all and set a new staff participation record of 53 staff and parents and collected a record number of canned goods for the Alameda County Food Bank.
Each participant received a token as they completed a circuit of the track. The total tokens earned gave runners eligibility for different prize drawings. Lucky participants were selected through drawings by grade level. Separate drawings were held for grand prizes and staff participants.
Prizes were donated by: Panera Bread, RaleyÕs Supermarkets, Safeway, LuckyÕs, Trader JoeÕs, Target, New Leaf (Pleasanton), SproutÕs FarmerÕs Market, Whole Foods, Walmart Neighborhood Stores, PeetÕs Coffee, StarbuckÕs, Chipotle, Boston Market, Elephant Bar Restaurant, Coldstone Creamery, Jamba Juice, McDonaldÕs, ErikÕs Deli, 24 Hour Fitness and Honeybaked Ham.
From CSD to the entire community, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
