Scholarship Recipients aka “Walter’s Gang”
PRC is so proud to support the running community by offering young runners scholarships to the American Running Camp in Walter’s memory. We call these young athletes Walter’s Gang. To date, a total of 75 young runners have received American Running Camp scholarships from the Walter Burgess Scholarship Fund.
We would like to introduce you to recent camp scholarship recipients and tell you a little about them.
Please take a moment to read the many thank you notes we received from some of our happy campers.
I wanted to thank the Parkway Running Club for selecting me for the Walter Burgess Scholarship! I had an amazing experience at the American Running Camp and learned a ton. The coaches were all incredibly successful runners who really cared about the needs of every camper. They taught us about everything from stretches to form to good core and strength exercises, and they were always available to give extra advice about running and racing. I loved the creative games and the workouts around the Portsmouth Abbey campus…it was absolutely beautiful. I truly believe that attending the American Running Camp will positively influence my cross country season this year and my running in general, and I have many new ideas and exercises to bring back to my team this fall! Camp gave me a jump start to the cross country season and I am super grateful to the Parkway Running Club for the wonderful opportunity!
P.S. Looking forward to running the Walter’s Run again this December!
