About the event

The 2022 Katie Welling Memorial Run/Walk will be an in-person event on the morning of Saturday, November 26.  Participants will meet at the front of the Bronxville School, 177 Pondfield Rd. Check-in will be open from 8 to 8:45 AM, and the race will start at 9 AM. Katie's Run/Walk is a 2.5 mile race. 

On April 10, 2005, Katie, a 2002 BHS graduate, died in an off campus fire at Miami University in Ohio. Katie had just turned 21.  While we all continue to struggle in our own way to cope with this tragedy, it has become abundantly clear that togetherness helps us heal.  The memory of Katie’s wonderful sense of humor, her infectious laugh, and her love of life helps to shape and color our lives and keeps us all forever connected with her.  For this reason, her vast array of friends have organized the annual Katie Welling Memorial Run/Walk. 

This year, we also honor Tom Welling, Katie's wonderful dad who passed away earlier this year. Tom led us in planning this special event for the last fifteen years and was an incredible friend and asset to the Bronxville community.

If you are not able to attend, you may also participate virtually by running, walking or biking 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.
