The Town of Frisco’s 8th Annual Frisco Turkey Day 5k, presented by The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute on Thanksgiving Day, raised over $6,000 for Frisco Elementary’ s S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) program. This event drew over 1,300 runners, walkers, dogs, and strollers on a chilly morning on Thursday, November 25 on a course that made its way on through Frisco and County side streets, as well as the Summit County Recreation Path. The $6,530 check was presented to Frisco Elementary staff and students on December 13 by the Town of Frisco and The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute.
“Frisco’s Turkey Day 5k brings together friends and family to enjoy a run or stroll for a good cause; so it was especially gratifying that the return of this race, after a very challenging year, resulted in enthusiastic participation from runners and walkers and the exceptional support of our presenting sponsor, The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute. In turn, this allowed us to support education and youth in our community with this very big check. It was truly a day to be thankful,” stated Grant McKay, Frisco Recreation Programs Coordinator.
“The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute are honored to be a partner of the Town of Frisco. Our mission is to keep people active, and being a part of an event where the local community participates in a fun 5K is exactly the kind of event we want to support. As an orthopaedic clinic and scientific research institute, we are thrilled that the proceeds from this event support science, technology, engineering and mathematics education for Frisco’s elementary school students,” stated Emily Lepore, Events & Sponsorships Coordinator at The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute.
