Hannibal, MO - The 2012 HLGU Trojan Turkey Trek will be held on Saturday, November 3. The "TTT" 5K Run/Walk and Kid's Fun Run are annual events sponsored by the missions department at HLGU. The 5K Race/Walk will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the grounds of the Mabee Sports Complex followed by the ½-mile fun run for kids.

The Trojan Turkey Trek is a fundraising event for the HLGU Missions Department. Hannibal-LaGrange University has been nationally recognized and awarded for the mission emphasis of the school. Students have opportunities each semester break (fall, Christmas, spring, and summer) to participate in missions or service projects locally, nationally, and internationally. Monies raised by the Trojan Turkey Trek help to offset student fundraising endeavors.

Online registration for the Trojan Turkey Trek is preferred. To register go to http://www.hlg.edu/ and click on the Trojan Turkey Trek slide. The cost is $20 for adult racers, $15 for HLGU students, faculty, staff, and alumni, $8 for Kid's Fun Run, or $50 for families. T-shirts for all pre-registered participants along with medals and individual prizes will be awarded.
