Remington Middle School held their annual Turkey Trot to raise awareness on hunger and collect food for the Franklin Food Pantry.
Food Pantry Executive Director, Anne Marie Bellevance, spoke with the students before showing a video on food hunger.
Principal Paul Peri guided the students through some warm up activities in the gym before going outside to run two laps around the building.

Through the generous efforts of groups like this, the Franklin Food Pantry has prepared and delivered over 250 turkey dinners to Franklin families in the past two weeks.
