Why Trot?

The annual Turkey Trot originated in 2007 by Coach Brian Hayes and the Immaculate High School Cross Country team. A scholarship fund to honor Donald J. Hassiak '87, a 16-year veteran of the Danbury Police Department was established. Hassiak was killed by a drunk driver in a tragic hit and run car accident when reporting to duty on June 3, 2010. With the consent of the Hassiak family, Hayes, also a Danbury Police Officer, agreed to have the proceeds of the Turkey Trot support the Donald J. Hassiak Scholarship Fund.

The Turkey Trot has grown into a school and community favorite. Taking place early on Thanksgiving morning it is great to see alumni, current students and staff, along with many wonderful residents of the Greater Danbury Area come together to remember an Immaculate alumnus who did so much for the community. The proceeds of the Turkey Trot all go towards scholarships for current Immaculate High School students, making it easier for them to continue their education at the school.
