HCC PTK hosts first-ever Turkey Trot to benefit local families
 
Turkey Trot
The Halifax Community College (HCC) Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) International Honor Society Alpha Eta Phi Chapter hosted the first-ever Turkey Trot, a campus-wide community service project on Nov. 21. Eight teams competed during the trot with four members per team. Each team purchased a 10-15 pound frozen turkey and created four unique ways to transport the turkey around a marked course on the front green. Each member carried the turkey one leg of the relay race. Prizes were awarded to winning teams. The turkeys were donated to the Halifax County Health Department and will feed 14 families during the Thanksgiving holiday.
