The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 23, 2017

Greta's Run
5k Run · Walk · Roll & Fundraiser


RACING TOWARD OPPORTUNITY DESPITE THE PHYSICAL CHALLENGES


Greta's Run is organized in memory of Greta Schoenemann, a Westfield High School freshman who died from injuries sustained on the first anniversary of 9/11, when a tree fell on her during lunch. Her childhood friends, Jayne Ruotolo and Ben Nanna, founded Greta's Run in 2013, to continue the work Greta was already doing. In honor of Greta's sister Elise, who has cerebral palsy, all proceeds benefit people with special & adaptive needs.

“The Westfield Public Schools join with the community in upholding the values of kindness and compassion that have become Greta’s legacy. The students, athletes and staff look forward to helping make Greta’s Run 2017 a success.”
