With the end of November comes the end of “Movember.” This year, five members of the Unalaska City School staff and supporters

brought back “The Aleutian Staches” team to participate in the worldwide fundraiser for men’s health issues. The men’s goal during the month was to keep their chins and cheeks clean while growing out their mustaches as a mark of solidarity.

Conditions were crisp and clear last Wednesday evening, which made for ideal running conditions at the annual Turkey Trot 5K run. 

Trotters of all ages and speeds gathered at the Aquatic Center to check in and sip hot cocoa provided by the PCR.

Around 7pm, runners and walkers made their way to Kelty Field and back, often high-fiving fellow participants as they passed.
