“The Great Turkey RUN” has always been a Fulton wrestling tradition on Thanksgiving Day.
Some suspect this was the coaches’ way of making sure the boys worked off a few of those fattening turkey day treats!
Starting this year, the traditional run has grown to become so much more.
The Fulton community has always been known for showing its tremendous love and support for these hard working , dedicated kids and the wrestlers wanted to show their appreciation for this loyalty by “Paying It Forward.” On Thanksgiving morning, the boys ran their traditional 3-mile run around the city while passing around a frozen turkey.
Meanwhile, the wrestlers’ parents collected donated frozen turkeys at Price Chopper in Fulton. These turkeys would be donated to he local food pantry for use in Christmas baskets and emergency food support programs.
The wrestlers felt this was one small way they could give back to all of their loyal Fulton supporters who may be struggling this year to provide a joyful holiday for their families. The Fulton wrestlers want to express their sincere thanks to all those wonderful people who donated turkeys for this event.
