Thanks for successful Turkey Trot 5K

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Merrimack I would like to thank all of the sponsors, runners and volunteers who made the Merrimack Turkey Trot 5K of 2015 such a great success.

In 2015, we had over 390 registered runners. We had runners from as far away as California and Colorado partake, as well as Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts and, of course, New Hampshire.

Congrats to Dave Vaccaro with the top time of 17:27, followed by Cam Jackson at 17:35 and Devon Crowley rounded out third place at 18:56. For complete results, please visit www.merrimack5k.com and click on the Race Results link.

The proceeds of the race allowed the Merrimack Rotary to purchase 29 coats for kids, holiday gifts for 12 residents off of the Lioness Christmas Tree Tag Program and donate funds to three Merrimack food pantries.

Again, we would like to thanks all runners, volunteers and the following sponsors:

New Balance, Merrimack Dental Associates, Interstate Batteries, Vault Motor Storage, Fidelity Investments, Convenient MD, Tech Transport, Wal-Mart (Amherst), Balanced Wealth Advisors, Papergraphics, People’s United Bank, D.W. Highway Mobil, Elliot Orthodontics, Eaton and Berube, Sal’s Pizza of Merrimack, KJB Ventures, Merrimack Office Properties, Mickeys Magicalvilla, Buckley Disposal Services, Maureen Mooney and Mark Derby and Liberty Mutual (Andrew Steeves).
