Posted: Friday, December 21, 2012

Pathfinder Kids Kampus, Huntington, received a check for $17,000 from local business representatives on Friday, December 14. The check was a result of the proceeds raised at the child care center’s Turkey Trot fundraiser held on Thanksgiving Day.

Representatives presenting the check were Sonya Foraker, Parkview Huntington Hospital; Britt Sather, Jessica Blumenfeld and Angie Dailey, all of McDonald’s restaurant in Huntington; Bill Miller, David Culp & Company, LLP; Michael Zahn, First Federal Savings Bank and Tom Mettler, Mettler Agency Inc.

Lisa Mettler, administrator of Pathfinder Kids Kampus, along with several children from Pathfinder Kids Kampus accepted the check on behalf of the child care center.

The Turkey Trot, in its eighth year, had 723 runners in the 5K and 100 walkers participate in the one-mile fun walk. The event set a new record of participants with 102 additional runners/walkers over 2011.

“We are grateful for the continued support of our sponsors of this year’s Turkey Trot,” stated Lisa Mettler. “McDonald’s was an outstanding host sponsor again, providing everything from the runner’s wick long sleeve t-shirts for all participants and volunteers, breakfast for all participants and facilities for the race. The eighth year of our Turkey Trot was a huge success and we are looking forward to an even better 2013,” Mettler concluded.

McDonald’s was the host sponsor of the race and donated all of the long sleeved T-shirts, cash prizes to the award winners and provided breakfast and the facilities for race participants.

David Culp & Company LLP, Parkview Huntington Hospital, Marathon A&A Quick Stop, Mettler Agency Inc., First Federal Bank, and iAB Financial Bank were all sponsors of the event and Trophy Center Plus donated the medals for all of the award recipients.
