Greta’s Run is a 5k run, walk, roll and fundraiser 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. Organized by Greta’s childhood friends, Greta’s Run is a neighborhood centerpiece that 1,300 people of all abilities look forward to participating in. All proceeds benefit people with special and adaptive needs.

Greta’s Run skipped a year to become a 501c3 volunteer-led nonprofit, moved to Roosevelt Intermediate School, and changed the date from September to April. Participants travel in from 24 states, so Greta’s Run adopted a Local and National approach to impact. This year, Challenged Athletes Foundation and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation will benefit from the proceeds. Learn more, here.
