More Than 500 Turn Out for 7th Annual Turkey Trot

by | Nov 26, 2017

The weather gods blessed the Main Street Association of EG’s 7th Annual Turkey Trot, with relatively mild temperatures for the Saturday-after-Thanksgiving 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run. And more than 500 people signed up to participate.

The top finisher was Bronson Venable, 27, of Warwick with a time of 15:16. Top female finisher was Coco Arcand, 16, of Sutton, Mass., who completed the run in 18:43. For all the finish times, click here.

Proceeds from the Turkey Trot will be donated to the Cultural Organization of the Arts (COA), a local nonprofit dedicated to bringing arts programming into East Greenwich public schools. On Saturday, the MSA also made a $500 donation from its general fund to the Gianna Cirella Foundation, which was established in the wake of the death of Gianna Cirella, daughter of EG Deputy Police Chief Skip Cirella, earlier this month.
