Phi Sigma Kappa will host its annual fundraiser this weekend to raise money for the American Red Cross. The Turkey Trot will take place on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The event, celebrating its third consecutive year, is comprised of a 5K race and reception following. The course will run throughout campus, starting and ending at Phi Sigma Kappa, 704 South Main Street. Mark’s Pizzeria will donate food for the gathering after the race.
The Turkey Trot is one of the annual philanthropic efforts of the fraternity. The brothers see it as a way to get the whole campus involved, as well as a number of Geneva organizations. More than 100 students usually run in the race, while a number of other community members participate by donating or showing up to support the runners. Hobart Student Government, William Smith Congress, HWS Hillel and Project Nur have donated on behalf of student organizations. Local businesses, such as Bagels & Cakes, Joe’s Hots and Sunset Bowl, have also given their support.
The Phi Sigma Kappa brothers have been tabling in the Scandling Campus Center to publicize the run. Those wishing to participate have until Saturday to sign up. Participants donate $5 for registration, which goes directly to the Red Cross. This covers the fee for the event and reception, as well as a Turkey Trot T-shirt. The rain date is set for the following weekend.
