Ahadu Yifru and Shaafan AlsindiTurkey Trotters…

Friends don’t let friends miss a good Turkey Trot on a beautiful fall day! Ahadu and Shaafan met a couple of years ago at Blue Ridge and became “fast” friends. Although Shaafan joked that he did not predict a great performance before the race, the pair finished the Rec Center’s 4th Annual Turkey Trot in fine fashion. Ahadu came in second and Shaafan finished fourth on the 3-mile course in the 11:30 am race.

Thirty-eight students and employees participated overall.
