The Turkey Trot is a fundraising event for the GCHS Booster Club. Money raised at this event will help fund the Booster Club objective to support Grayslake Central’s athletic programs and it’s Athletes. Our goal is to generate funds that will be used to purchase items that are not in the budgets of our athletic programs and to pay for Athletes in need to cover their Athletic Fees. The Booster Club believes that no student should be unable to participate as an Athlete if they are unable to pay sport related fees.

Athletic Trainers

Athletico Trainers will be on-site for injury care and evaluation as well as assistance on all matters pertaining to the health and well being of the participants.
