Following the success of last year\u2019s Track Friday event, Trumbull resident Heidi Langan is once again hoping to turn the shopping frenzy of Black Friday into a day of focus on charity, community and health. On the day after Thanksgiving from 9 to noon, Langan and others will take to the track at Trumbull High School for an informal charity walk\/run. \u201cThe whole premise is to get away with the hype and materialism that surrounds this time of the year,\u201d she said. \u201cWhat I really want to see happen is for our community to shed the commercialism of Black Friday and replace it by coming together with friends and family.\u201d The fitness-based event encourages participants to run or walk, while donating to the charity of their choice. Last year\u2019s event drew more than 100 people and scores of donations, she said. In addition to giving participants the choice to walk or run, Langan said, those who attend may walk or run for any given amount of time \u2014 and at any length \u2014 that morning. \u201cThere\u2019s no set length,\u201d she said. \u201cPeople can run at any increment, for any amount of time. It\u2019ll be a good way for them to walk or run off the turkey from the day before.\u201d she said. Participants are also given complete freedom as to what charity they\u2019d like to donate toward this holiday season. \u201cThe money raised is not going to one specific area,\u201d she added. \u201cYou can donate to wherever you want \u2014 choose any charity.\u201d The national Track Friday event in New Jersey raised more than $20,000 last year, and the local Trumbull one topped $2,000, she said.
