Turkey Trot brings funds for GRPS athletics - Nov 23rd, 2012 - Local

The 20th annual Grand Rapids Public School 5K Turkey Trot took place Thursday morning and this time it was held downtown Grand Rapids. The event started and finished at the Van Andel Arena. More than 2,000 runners took part in the fundraiser for GRPS athletics this year. The race is the biggest fundraising event for public school athletics and the money raised is so kids in the district don't have to pay to play sports. The move from the suburbs to downtown seems to have helped in the increased number of runners say organizers.
