Commissioner, Track Stars Hosting Turkey Trot on Saturday

            County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly and a pair of U.S. track stars will host a Turkey Trot 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Dr. William U. Pearson Community Center, 1625 W. Carey Ave. 

            Youth ages 6 to 14 are invited to compete in a series of races, with the winners receiving medals and free turkeys. Track stars Leroy Dixon and Rodney Martin will be at the races to help hand out the medals, and later host a question and answer session at the Community Center. 

            “Thanksgiving is a great time of year to celebrate and enjoy friends and family,” Commissioner Weekly said. “I would like to thank Leroy and Rodney for joining me this Saturday as we give our rising track stars of the future the chance to bring home a turkey for Thanksgiving.”

             The races are free to enter, and no pre-registration is required. The youth will compete in races of 100, 200 and 400 meters. There will also be a 4 x 100 meter relay race. 

            Dixon and Martin are accomplished sprinters, who have seen success on the track in high school and college, as well as at national and international meets. Both attended the University of South Carolina, and Martin is a graduate of Las Vegas’ Western High School.
