“Each year, hundreds of families from Marshfield and beyond come together for the MarshVegas Turkey Trot. It’s a wonderful opportunity to gather with community and friends and has become a Thanksgiving tradition for many,” noted Jim Bunnell, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield.
This year’s Turkey Trot is held in memory of our dear friend Scott Hamill who passed away this past June. A lifelong resident of Marshfield, Scott was a tremendous supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of Marshfield. He was one of the original volunteers to start the Turkey Trot nine years ago. Scott thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the planning committee for this event and was incredibly pleased with seeing how much the Turkey Trot has grown from year one. We will continue this event in Scott’s memory going forward.
This event is sponsored by Tiny & Sons Glass, Roche Bros. and Quirk Cars.
