What is the WMC Memorial 5K Turkey Trot?

The WMC Memorial 5K Turkey Trot is a community event being held to continue the tradition of the WMC Memorial Race started many years ago in memory of Kyleigh D’Alessio and Tanner Birch. Since then the race has also honored the memory of Stephen Berstler, the proceeds of the race will continue to fund the memorial scholarships in their names, as well as new recreational projects for the benefit of the Township. We hope to make this event a holiday tradition in Washington Township, Morris County.
