Scholarship Recipients -- Walter's Gang:

As a tribute to Walter, his running club, the Parkway Running Club of 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 here for recent testimonials from Walter's Gang.
