      Gearing up for the Turkey Trot

      Once again, organizers of this year's Turkey Trot Race are ready to help those looking to get some exercise in before their big Thanksgiving day meal.

      The 5 and 10 kilometer race is a fundraiser for Marquette orchestra students. Organizers are also collecting canned goods for the TV6 Canathon. Business Students of America designed and will be selling t-shirts for $15 to raise money for their club. Organizers say the race is a great way to meet up with some old friends in a fun atmosphere.

      "We have a lot of people that live out of town that are visiting just for Thanksgiving, and it's a great time to see people you haven't seen in a while," said Marquette Senior High School Orchestra Director, Janis Peterson.

      The race takes place at Marquette Senior High School Thanksgiving morning with registration at 8 a.m. and the race beginning at 9.
