Scholarship Recipients -- Walter's Gang:
As a tribute to
Walter, his running club, the
West Roxbury, MA, began fund raising with the intent to send deserving
young runners to
American Running Camp
in Portsmouth, RI
(formerly the Newport Running camp)
in his memory. Walter had so many devoted friends and family, that
the response to the fund raising campaign was overwhelming.
The camp is coached
by American University staff. Matt Centrowitz the “elder” is the
camp director and his son recently placed fourth at the London 2012
Olympics in the 1500
meter race. Matthew the "younger" attended camp since he was a boy so it
shaped his career and he became an Olympian. He also came in third
in the1500 meters in the 2011 World Championships.
We would like to
introduce you to the camp scholarship recipients and tell you a little
about them. Click
