Mr. Kepreos and students in Future Business Leaders of America hosted their annual turkey trot fundraiser for the Rainbows Babies and Children’s Hospital on Thanksgiving morning.
Kepreos has a reason to give back to the hospital since his daughter Sarah was in the hospital for an extended amount of time when she was younger after three open-heart surgeries.
“I want to give back to the hospital after they’ve done so much for us,” Kepreos said.
Kepreos has been a business teacher at Kenston High School for 12 years, and this is the 11th year of the turkey trot, with many people from the community participating for years.
“I’ve done it for five or six years now and it’s for a good cause. It gets you up in the morning and gets you moving,” said senior Kyle Silk.
The race takes place in Kepreos’ own neighborhood, Bainbrook Laurel Springs, and features a 5K run or a shorter walk of 1 mile. Although it is a for a good cause, it is also fun to participate in. Registration comes with donuts, coffee, and a T-shirt.
“I think it’s great, I mean it’s for a good cause and everyone’s able to come out and just have fun,” said freshman Braden Hunt.
