Ninth Annual Jacobs Turkey Trot to be Run in Hull
HULL — Principal Christine Cappadona announces that the Lillian M. Jacobs Elementary School will be hosting its Ninth Annual Jacobs Turkey Trot this week.
Wednesday, Nov. 22 at 10 a.m.
Lillian M. Jacobs Elementary School, 180 Harborview Road.
Following a pep rally at the school, fourth and fifth grade students will be running in the Ninth Annual Jacobs Turkey Trot. Teachers will keep track and record their students’ times as they complete the 1.2-mile race. An awards celebration for all participants and their families will be held in the gym following the race and all students will be awarded with a finisher’s medal and certificate of completion. The overall winner and the top three girls and boys from each grade will earn additional awards, which were donated by the Hull PTO and Lori Tobin from SporTobin.
In the days leading up to the race, the school is hosting a food drive, where canned goods will be collected in classrooms and donated to the local food pantry, Wellspring. Parents and residents who would like to donate to the food drive can drop off items at the school lobby up until Wednesday morning.
“The students have been training all fall for this in their physical education classes and on their own,” Principal Cappadona said. “We look forward to the pep rally and the race every year and it’s a great way to begin the Thanksgiving celebration.”
