LAKEVIEW, NY (WKBW-TV) - Students at Pinehurst Elementary were in the Thanksgiving spirit on Tuesday. They held their own version of the Turkey Trot.

Hundreds took part in the race with the theme "Move Your Feet Before You Eat." Physical Education teachers at Pinehurst came up with the idea to promote fitness.

Students from kindergarten through 5th grade "gobbled up" the idea and took off running and cheering each other on.
