For the second time, Torrington's Forbes Flyers have been selected to join a group of jump ropers from around the country and perform at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
Torrington Students Will Jump Rope at Macy's Parade
The Forbes Flyers is made up of elementary, middle and high school students from Torrington. On Thanksgiving the Flyers will join a larger group that will perform on the entire two-and-a-half mile parade route. They'll end with a special one-minute performance in Herald Square that will be broadcast on NBC. The students said the chance to display their talent on a national stage is very exciting. Coach Harrington called it a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the kids and their families.
The team has set a fundraising goal of $3,000 for the trip and is still working to reach that number. If you'd like to help out, you can send a donation to:
