Angel Walk/Run

by Megan Haymond

On Sunday, November 24 at 2pm members of the Bellbrook community gathered at the Bellbrook High School stadium for the Angel Walk/Run. The purpose of the run was to, “Honor all the students and staff who have passed away, and to raise money for a scholarship of your choice.” Seventeen different scholarships or memorial funds were available for participants to designate which fund their $10 fee went to. The Skylar Kooken Memorial Scholarship earned $700 and $1,410 was the total amount raised. Any money that was not given to a specific scholarship was split evenly to all memorial funds. The run was two miles and took place on the track and in Kable’s Mill.
Bellbrook High School’s Anthony Munoz Leadership Conference group organized the event. Jenna Rittenhouse, a junior member of Anthony Munoz said, “It was amazing to see how much community support was shown even with temperatures below twenty degrees.” Despite the weather, Bellbrook citizens showed their love for their fellow members of the community that have passed away. The run/walk not only helped spread the wonderful memories of those who have passed away, it gave those that will benefit from these scholarships’ aid.
