The Board of Indy Runners recently voted to rename a scholarship in honor of our friend and local educator. The Erika Wells Memorial Scholarship provides college scholarships to local boys and girls who have been positively impacted by the sport of running. As a kindergarten teacher and participant in Girls on the Run, Back on My Feet and other organizations, Erika understood both the power of education and fitness. The scholarship program is but one way in which her legacy will carry on.
If you wish to donate in her honor, you may do so when renewing your annual membership or online at: http://getmeregistered.com/ErikaWellsScholarship.
A special thank you to Carmel Road Racing Group, organizers of the Carmel Marathon and Indy Women's Half Marathon, for a very generous donation to ensure the success of the Erika Wells Memorial Scholarship. Applications for 2017 graduates will open in the winter.
