turkey trot celebrates 10th anniversary
More than 1,400 trotters and supporters flocked to the island this year for the 10th Annual Town of Palm Beach United Way Turkey Trot.
Race registrations provided Thanksgiving meals to 6,000 children and adults at 23 Town of Palm Beach United Way non-profit agencies in Palm Beach County. That includes victims of child abuse and domestic violence staying in group homes, families staying in homeless shelters, and students who get to come together with peers and mentors to celebrate the holiday.
Joseph Berrafati, 19, was the top overall finisher and the first male runner to cross the finish line in 17:30.6. Vivian McMahon, 15, was the top overall female finisher with a time of 19:19.4.
