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.
