Colleen E. Ritzer Scholarship Recipient to Sing National Anthem at 5th Annual Step Up for Colleen 5K Walk/Run
Katie Rex, a 2015 Colleen E. Ritzer Memorial Scholarship recipient, will sing the National Anthem prior to the 5th Annual Step Up for Colleen 5K Walk/Run in Andover, Massachusetts. She is currently in her third year at the University of New Hampshire studying elementary and special education with dreams of becoming a passionate and dedicated teacher like Colleen one day.
Katie greatly values the impact the scholarship Colleen has made on her over the past years.
“I am so honored and blessed to carry out a legacy and a life that touched so many hearts. I aspire to be the great teacher Colleen was one day,” said Katie. Being a part of such an inspiring program has helped me to realize how precious life is and how important it is to live life to the fullest.
This will be Katie’s second consecutive year singing the national anthem in front of the sea of pink that nears over 3,000 runners and walkers.
“I’m so grateful for everything this amazing program and family has done for me over the past three years and it’s truly my honor to be able to sing the National Anthem,” said Katie.
We invite you to see Katie sing the National Anthem and honor Colleen at the 5th Annual Step Up for Colleen 5K Walk/Run on Sunday, May 6, 2018 by registering today
