By Staff


Nov. 8, 2017:  The annual Katie Welling Memorial Run/Walk will be held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 25. This year marks the eleventh anniversary of the run/walk.

The run/walk is sponsored by The Bronxville School Foundation, whose website describes the event: “The Run/Walk is a wonderful community event that honors Katie Welling, a 2002 BHS graduate and competitive runner who died at the age of 21 in an off-campus fire at Miami of Ohio University. The Run/Walk commemorates Katie’s wonderful sense of humor, her infectious laugh, and her love of life and sport. After the race there will be refreshments and awards on the track. The funds raised by this event benefit The Bronxville School Foundation.”

As Tom Welling, Katie’s father, and Peggy Williams, the executive director of The Bronxville School Foundation, said in an article in MyhometownBronxville last year, “Katie's death in an off-campus fire at Miami University in Ohio in 2005, just 11 days after her 21st birthday, was devastating for her family and friends, who still struggle with her loss. The love and support from Katie's friends and so many in the community were and continue to be a great source of comfort to the Welling family. Katie's Run is a recurring manifestation of this community spirit of caring. . . . The 2.5-mile run/walk was organized by Katie's classmates and friends 10 years ago and has become an important community Thanksgiving weekend tradition. ” 

Check-in will be from 7:30 to 8:30 am on Saturday, November 25, and the race starts at 9:00 am on the front lawn of The Bronxville School on Pondfield Road. The entry fee is $25 before November 21 and $30 thereafter, including the day of the race. The age groups are 8 and under, 9-12, 13-18, 19-35, 36-49, and 50+.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
