Kansas City Kansas Community College’s first-ever Turkey Games was a big success with almost 30 competitors.
Joseph Mundt, wellness specialist at KCKCC’s Health and Wellness Center, said the goal of the first Turkey Games, which was Wednesday at the Wellness Center, was to encourage physical activity in a competitive atmosphere as well as to promote KCKCC within the community. Participants competed in several events including the Turkey Broom Push, Turkey Obstacle Course, Turkey Toss, Turkey Bowling, the Turkey Sprint, Pin the Tail on the Turkey and Balance a Turkey. Although there was interest in using real turkeys, no actual turkey was used in the competition. Medicine balls between six and 12 pounds represented the turkeys.
In addition, Don Proctor, a photographer from Fox 4, came to the KCKCC campus to see the Turkey Games in action. Watch Fox 4 News at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. tonight to see an on-camera interview with Mundt as well as clips from some of the Turkey Games events!
