All Hail the Turkey King and Queen
Eric Vandendries and his daughter, 13-year-old Gabrielle took the overall men's and "women's" titles in the Steven T. Hill Stroke Foundation 5K, and won the honor of being crowned Turkey King and Turkey Queen for the day.
(How many NETTers can you spot in this pic?
And special thanks to our specators Doris (team photographer) and Martin.
It was the second year in a row that NETT has claimed the Turkey King crown. Last year, it was Frank KJ that was crowned as the fowl monarch.
The race funds all went to a very worthy cause. The family of stroke victim Steven Hill started the foundation to help with Steven's care after he suffered a stroke at age 33 in 2009. We had the honor of meeting Steven and his family at the race and they personally thanked NETT for showing up in force to support their cause.
Life is like a monkey sometimes...sometimes you just gotta bring the bananas!
