Throggs Neck Benevolent Association hosts 27th annual Turkey Trot
The Throggs Neck Benevolent Association’s held their 5k Turkey Trot at Orchard Beach on Saturday.
Two-hundred runners and walkers of all ages participated in the event.
The Turkey Trot was held in memory of Geraldine Crowley-Crorkin who died from cancer in April 1995 shortly after she gave birth.
"This is really an example of how the community came together right after to show some support…I mean we're still doing this over 25 years later,” said Patrick Crorkin, Crowley-Crorkin’s son.
The money raised from the Turkey Trot will go back into the community to help Bronx residents battling illnesses.
News 12’s Shniece Archer joined the many participants that trotted to the finish line.
