Greta Shoenemann's Freinds Make Greta's Run A Success
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 • 12:52pm
Greta Schoenemann's freinds and family flew in from 11 states and Germany to be among the 1,000+ participants of Greta's Run in its innaugural year!
Greta's Run is a 5k Run/Walk & Fundraiser founded in memory of Greta Schoenemann, a WHS freshman who died from injuries sustained on 9/11/02 when a tree limb fell on her and a table of friends as they ate lunch. Founded by Greta's childhood friends Ben Nanna and Jayne Ruotolo, all proceeds will benefit new and existing special needs programs at the Westfield Area Y. It's a gesture that would be close to Greta's heart because her sister Elise has Cerebral Palsy. To learn more about Greta Schoenemanna, Greta's Run or to Donate, visit the website.
