Dear Supporter of the Step Up for Colleen,
As the pandemic continues to affect all of our lives, we realize that this is not only a socially difficult time for many, but also a financially difficult one. For these reasons, we have made the heart-wrenching decision to cancel the 7th Annual Step Up for Colleen. While it was difficult to cancel the annual event and not gather the sea of pink to remember Colleen this year, the health, safety and financial needs of our community are our top priority. With the cancellation of the event, we are providing you two options regarding your registration fee, detailed below.
We continue to hold hope that no matter what is happening in the world, Colleen's legacy will continue to shine bright and we look forward to awarding scholarships this June. Thank you for your heartfelt support of Colleen, her legacy, our family, and the Step Up for Colleen 5K! We hope to see you all in May 2021!
There are two options for you to consider:
· Donate your registration fee and support scholarships for future teachers
· Obtain a refund of your registration fee
Please respond by May 2, 2020 as all registrations will convert to donations at midnight on that date
*If you used a coupon to register, no action is needed.

The friends and family of Colleen Ritzer created this 5K Walk/Run to celebrate Colleen’s life and her commitment to helping and inspiring others. Through the Step Up for Colleen Walk/Run, organizers and participants celebrate Colleen and the values by which she lived. The net proceeds benefit the Colleen E. Ritzer Memorial Scholarship Fund. The Fund was established by Colleen’s family to benefit Andover and Danvers High School seniors who demonstrate a passion for teaching, academic excellence and love of family and who will pursue a degree in education.
