The Turkey Trot fundraiser is be­ing held in mem­ory of Clif­ford Reigner, who was an avid sports en­thu­si­ast, ath­lete and long-time sup­porter of the Boy­er­town Com­mu­nity and the sports pro­gram.

Cliff grad­u­ated from Boy­er­town Area Se­nior High in 1963. Dur­ing his high school years, he earned var­sity let­ters in foot­ball and track and field. Fol­low­ing high school, Cliff’s pas­sion for Boy­er­town Sports con­tin­ued, and he al­ways could be found in the fan sec­tion of home and away games, cheer­ing for foot­ball, basketball, wrestling, baseball, lacrosse, field hockey and track for both the boys’ and girls’ teams.

As a sup­porter of Boy­er­town sports, he was a mem­ber of BAFA, in­stru­men­tal in the build­ing of the Boy­er­town foot­ball field/sta­dium and part of the Vic­tory Mile and the Boy­er­town Well­ness Coun­cil.

One of his chil­dren’s fond­est mem­o­ries of their fa­ther was go­ing to the Boy­er­town High School foot­ball games on Thanks­giv­ing Day. It was a tra­di­tion that they were sad to see end—and now they hope to launch a new tra­di­tion with the Turkey Trot. Bring your fam­ily and friends and join us for this fun event at the Boy­er­town Com­mu­nity Park.
