7th Annual Chatham Turkey Trot is Most Successful


Dear Editor: 

It’s hard to believe that after last year’s race it could get any better, yet, with the sun shining and temperatures in the mid-forties, the 7th Annual Chatham Turkey Trot was our most successful race ever!

The event had more than 950 registered runners and raised more than $24,000 benefiting the Chatham Township Volunteer Fire Department and the Diabetes Research Institute.
