PHOTOS: Ryan School's Annual Turkey Trot Relays
Not only do the Ryan School 6th Graders do battle in turkey-toting relay races, they also gather hundreds of pounds of food for the Tewksbury Community Food Pantry.
Most people like their Thanksgiving turkeys roasted. But the students at the Ryan School prefer theirs frozen.
On Wednesday, Ryan School students participated in the annual Turkey Trot Relays.
But the relays, in which teams of students make their way through an obstacle course while toting a fozen turkey, is just part of the tradition. The students also gather hundreds of pounds of food each year for the Tewksbury Community Food Pantry.
Editor Bill Gilman was on hand Wednesday and captured these images.
