A 5K Road Race had always been a staple of Boylston’s Memorial Celebration on the town common, but it’s popularity was beginning to wane. When the race was renamed and reworked in Katie’s memory in 2008, the race committee made sure to continue honoring our nation’s veterans by donating proceeds to the Veteran’s Inc. organization in Worcester. Also, a scholarship was set up in Katie’s name at Tahanto Regional High School where Katie was a member of the class of 2003. The scholarship is awarded yearly at graduation and is given to females graduating from Boylston who are moving on to a two or four year college degree program.
