Abbot Grandma Celebrating 71st Birthday Raises $100 at Run-A-Thon

When Noel Winkler, grandma of an Abbot Elementary student, realized her 71st birthday would fall on the same day as the 49th Annual Abbot Elementary Run-a-Thon, she decided to join the fundraiser. Noel is walking 50 laps today and will be raising $100 for the Abbot PTO.

Quite by accident, her race number turned out to be 71, making the story even more incredible.

In addition to being an Abbot grandma, Noel is a retired Ann Arbor Public Schools teacher. She taught at Mack and Forsythe.

If you see Noel walking today, please make sure to thank her and say happy birthday!
