Heidi Langan is hoping some people take time out from walking through the mall on Friday to get some fresh air and exercise, and to do a little good along the way. Langan, a Trumbull resident, is hosting the fourth annual \u201cTrack Friday\u201d event at Trumbull High from 9 a.m. to noon on Nov. 23. The event, timed every year to coincide with the Black Friday retail holiday, is focused on community, charity, and health, she said. \u201cTrack Friday is a national movement of active awareness for charities, held on the day after Thanksgiving \u2014 a day that sadly has become synonymous with commercialism, door-buster sales, and marketing schemes,\u201d Langan said. \u201cInstead of seeing stories about people fighting over discounted televisions, wouldn\u2019t it be great to see people across the country spending time with their friends and families, burning some calories, and paying it forward to non-profits in our communities?\u201d The fitness-based event encourages participants to run or walk while donating to the charity of their choice. Last year\u2019s event drew about 200 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 has raised more than $175,000 since 2012. The local Trumbull one, the only one in Connecticut, typically generates about $2,000 in charitable donations, Langan said.
