At the crack of dawn on Thanksgiving morning, close to 600 started their holiday off on the right foot by joining in on the Annual Tri-N-Run Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk at the Lafayette Golf Course. The freezing temperatures and intermittent snow flurries did not stop these runners from showing up and supporting LUM. Runners, walkers, babies in strollers, and dogs all took part in this wonderful event.
Hundreds of dedicated runners participated to support LUM, including Lafayette City Clerk, Cindy Murray; McCutcheon & Harrison High runners; and Tippecanoe School Corporation Superintendent, Dr. Scott Hanback and his family.
Thank you to the Tri-N-Run team, Midwest Rentals, all of the runners and sponsors for making this possible.
