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.
While we hoped to have a live event in 2021, we decided to pivot to a fully virtual event for maximum safety and flexibility. The event had more than 200 participants and raised over $24,000. In addition to those participating locally, we had people from as far away as California, Illinois, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Nicaragua. We want to thank this amazing community, which included Bronxville alums, community members, and friends and family who continued to capture the spirit of the event by participating virtually and sharing photos.
Donations 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.
Thank you to all of the donors and participants who support the Foundation in Katie's memory each year!
