Let's Take a Look at the Videotape!

Despite record lows in temperature, year 13 reached new heights in both participation and donations.

Year 12!

The 11th Annual Shippan Turkey Trot was also a real blast! Don't believe me?? Watch the video and see for yourself!

But, hang on! The Tenth Annual Shippan Turkey Trot wasn't too bad either!

Truthfully, they've all been great. Unfortunately, we only started filming a couple years ago.
