Katie Welling Memorial Run/Walk

The Katie Welling Memorial Run/Walk is a wonderful community event that honors Katie Welling, a 2002 BHS graduate who died in an off-campus fire at Miami University in Ohio. Katie had just turned 21. The Run/Walk commemorates Katie's wonderful sense of humor, her infectious laugh, and her love of life.

We hoped to be able to have a live event this year, but we have decided to pivot to a fully virtual event for maximum safety and flexibility. We invite virtual participants to run, walk, or bike at any time from November 15 through 30.  Walking or running on a treadmill or riding on a stationary bike at home are also great ways to participate.

There is no registration fee this year, but a tax-deductible contribution would be welcomed.  Donations will benefit The Bronxville School Foundation whose mission is to enhance the quality of the education at The Bronxville School where Katie spent so many happy years.

Please take a moment to take a photo and upload it after you finish so we can all share in this event together.
