Family of New Paltz would like to thank everyone for coming out to support Family and participate in last year's Turkey Trot! Building on the success of previous years, the plans for this year's Thanksgiving fundraiser for Family of New Paltz includes a variety of improvements and enhancements designed to increase participation and add to the fun of the event. During a kickoff meeting, the Committee decided that this years event will include prizes for best costumes, tee shirts for adults and children, and of course the famous Mashed Potato Fun Run, which is free for For the more serious runners, the 5K course will be certified by USAFT this year, and participants will be able to opt for chip timing. As part of the package provided by the chip-timing company, photos of individual runners crossing the finish line will be available for upload at no cost. Age groups this coming year will be in five-year increments, and medals will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each age group, with separate awards for male and female.

With your help and that of our generous sponsors, we were able to raise substantial funds to help families in need during last year's holiday season. Your support is very much appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again in 2014.
