Celebrating Kaija Andersen


Fleet Feet is joining Jason and Susan Andersen, bringing the community together to honor the memory of their daughter, Kaija, who passed away due to a sudden acute asthma attack. A vibrant member of our community, we are honored to contribute to her Scholarship and looking forward to running for Kaija!

Race proceeds will benefit The Kaija Jung Andersen Memorial Scholarship established through the Montclair Scholarship Fund. Scholarships will be awarded to college-bound Montclair High School seniors with financial need who demonstrate the potential for success in bringing people together and creating joy and comfort in their lives, and exemplify Kaija’s spirit through their acts of compassion, creativity, curiosity, courage, and contribution to community inclusion.

If you are unable to participate in the run please make a donate to support Kaija’s scholarship fund.
