5K RUN • WALK • ROLL • VOLUNTEER • DONATE • SPONSOR | April 28
Greta's Run is the principal fundraiser for Greta's Run Foundation, a volunteer-led, granting-making 501(c)3 nonprofit.
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 a success.”
