2019 Turkey Trot

2019 Turkey Trot
Posted on 11/22/2019
Tobin Montessori Turkey Trot – November 27th 

As many of you know, last year we worked to revise our annual Turkey Trot event. Our goal was to create an event that worked to strengthen our tight-knit community while simultaneously giving back to the community---through helping those in need. Last year, the students worked to raise funds for the Margaret Fuller House and it was truly amazing when the students came together in the auditorium to present a "Big Check" to this food pantry.  

This year, Tobin and Friends of Tobin will again ask families and local businesses for monetary donations. These donations will be used to both purchase gift cards for Tobin families in need and to sponsor all of the Tobin students as they engage in the Turkey Trot. We are excited to announce: This year the funds we raise will be donated to the MIT Broad Institute in memory and in honor of one of our Tobin Students Sajni Chakrabarti. Sajni was an extraordinary child who spread kindness throughout our community and who also LOVED the Turkey Trot! She continues to be a presence in our community. The Buddy Bench in our recess yard is dedicated to her and a beautiful picture of her hangs on the wall right next to the main office. Please consider donating to this important fund. You can read more about the Sajni Fund in this Boston Globe article

We NEED your help:
Please consider making a monetary donation to support our children as they walk/run to raise money to donate. If you are willing to donate (any amount counts--even 1$), please make checks payable to the Friends of Tobin. They will make the donation to the Broad Institute on our behalf---after the students present the “Big Check” to the Institute at an assembly. Please send checks or cash to school via backpack express (clearly labeled) or drop them off to Mary Frawley in the Main Office.
