Results are posted! Visit here.
Join us for a fun filled morning starting with a 5K timed run / 1 mile fun run through American Village. A post race festival on the Myers Field will follow the races. Whether you are a competitive racer or looking forward to walking with your friend, we are sure you will have a great time.
The TDS Twister Trot, formerly Marcy's Run, is a race to honor the courage and strength of our community. Marcy Speer was a dedicated wife, mother, and scientist in the Durham community and lost her battle with cancer in 2006. We invite all of our racers to honor a friend or family member impacted by cancer at our race.
Triangle Day School is partnering with Be The Match® for the 2013 Twister Trot on November 23. Our school family has been touched by cancer in many ways and we want to help others by growing the bone marrow donor registry. Amy Wolf, a TDS lifer, and Caroline Daniels, a family member, both received transplants in recent years. The transplant journey takes courage and strength. Both girls are beautiful examples of grace and courage. Every new bone marrow donor added to the registry increases the possibility of healing for a cancer patient. Be The Match® will be at our event to swab cheeks and help any individual register to be a bone marrow donor.
