Posted: Friday, December 20, 2013

Turkey Trot sponsors presented $21,300 to Pathfinder Kids Kampus Administrator Lisa Mettler on December 19. Donations for the 2013 race increased over 20% percent from 2012. The Thanksgiving race day brought out 940 registrants in the 5K and the one mile fun walk.

“We’re grateful for the continued support of our sponsors, participants and volunteers,” Mettler said.  “This event continues to be a success thanks to the efforts of these people.  The funds which were raised will definitely benefit the children and families who participate in Pathfinder Kids Kampus’ programs.”

Mettler, with the help of John Niederman, president of Pathfinder Services as well as several Pathfinder Kids Kampus youth received the proceeds check from Britt Sather, Angie Dailey and Jessica Blumenfeld of McDonald’s, Becky Scheiber of PNC Bank, Juli Johnson of Parkview Huntington Hospital, Bill Miller of David Culp & Co. and Tom Mettler from Mettler Agency.

McDonald’s, as host sponsor, donated long-sleeve t-shirts, breakfast to participants and cash prizes for winners as well as opened the Huntington facility and provided staffing for the event.  Additional sponsors included PNC Bank, Parkview Huntington Hospital, David Culp & Co., Mettler Agency, and Morgan Stanley. Additional donations of product for the event were made by Deweese Soft Water & Appliance, TrophyCenter Plus, Ad Design, and Ace Hardware.

The 10th Annual Pathfinder Kids Kampus Turkey Trot is set to take place on Thanksgiving Day, November 27, 2014.
