Wherever you are, we invite you to run with us between 10/17 - 10/30 to celebrate the life and legacy of Welles Crowther. We will be in touch with ways to share our running experiences via social media as we run together, apart.

With Gratitude

A special thank you to all those at Boston College who help make this event so successful.  We could not make this happen without the support of BC Dining, BCPD, the department of Transportation & Parking, and the Office of Community & Govermental Affairs.

In addition, we are all extremely grateful for the annual support of the men's and women's lacrosse teams, the men's baseball team, Eagle EMS, women's field hockey, and the many students, faculty, and staff who participate as volunteers, runners, walkers, or well-wishers.
