Peterson's Third Annual Turkey Trot Tuesday, November 25

Gobble Gobble Gobble!!!  Last year, Peterson’s Second Annual Turkey Trot Fundraiser was a great success for our Physical Education department and our school.  We raised $6.5K for fitness equipment that has resulted in fun and challenging workouts, strengthened muscles and minds, and improved health and fitness!  This year’s fundraiser event is being held for more equipment to complete our Pirate Strong fitness room, which will improve the quality of our program immensely.  The overall cost for our vision will be over $6K.  Funds will also be set aside to donate to this year’s charity, California State Parks!  The way the PE department sees it, if every student was able to collect $5-$10 in donations, then the entire school could raise approximately $4,500-$9,000!

Day of the Turkey Trot:

All Peterson students and staff are invited to participate in the event.  We will gather on the blacktop for the START and FINISH of the race.  There will be two “waves” of participants.  The first wave will RUN the course and compete for prizes.  The second wave can walk, run, skip, or just make forward progress towards the finish line.  At the end we will celebrate each other’s efforts with a prize ceremony and a raffle.  Furthermore, we can all enjoy snacks, music, and each other’s company!

Event Details:                             

Date:                   Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Time:                   1:00p – 2:35p

Course:                Approximately 1.5-2 mile course throughout Peterson’s campus

Prizes:                  The top three runners for each gender of each grade grade will be awarded prizes.  For example, the top three boys and girls from 6th grade will each earn a prize, totaling 6 prizes for 6th grade.  There will also be a prize for the 6th grade PE class who raises the most funds for the event, and also the top 7th or 8th grade PE class.  (Prize details TBD)

For more information, please see the 2014 Turkey Trot Pledge Form and Information in the Parent Resource Locker to the left.
