About This Activity

The Marquette Turkey Trot is a fundraising event for the MSHS Orchestra and Business Club.  Students from the business club design the t-shirt and handle online registration.  The business club donates their proceeds from t-shirt sales to the orchestra and people in need.  This year the business club is donating to Lily Bengry from Negaunee, MI.  Lily is a 16 year old girl who suffered from a stroke before the start of school this year.  She is currently at Sacred Heart in Milwaukee and doing her rehabilitation. Lily is expected to be home toward the end of October but her family has had to endure many hotel/travel/medical expenses.  We hope to raise enough funds to help out.
