Turkey trot and running for fun

by Joy Toney,
 
The Hearne ISD Student Congress hosted the Turkey Trot Fun Run in order to collect canned goods for local food pantries. All students PK-12 who donated a canned good were encouraged to come out and participate in the Fun Run. The student congress members set up a track behind the elementary school because the running trail was too wet. Student congress members cheered on the younger students and their classmates. Many teachers also came out to participate and run with their students. We appreciate all the students that participated. Over 800 cans were collected and delivered to local pantries.
