On behalf of the Sparta Education Foundation (SEF) and the children of our public school district, I would like to thank the volunteers, sponsors and trotters who came together to help make the 7th Annual Krogh's Turkey Trot a success.A chilly morning did not deter over 2400 runners and their families from kicking off Thanksgiving morning with friends and neighbors.All proceeds from the race benefit the SEF. To date, our foundation has awarded grants in excess of $410,000 to our public schools.For more information on the grantsor becoming a member, visit spartaeducationfoundation.org.We are grateful to our generous sponsors.
