Welles Remy Crowther Red Bandana Run, 10/16/2016
Boston College hosts 12th Annual Red Bandana 5k to celebrate Welles Remy Crowther, a Class of 1999 BC graduate and 9/11 hero
Administrative assistant Olivia Eveslage joined her friends and more than 1,800 participants in this year’s Red Bandana Run. All proceeds from the run are donated to the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust, started by the Crowther family in memory of Welles, a 1999 graduate who died a hero on 9/11. The Trust sponsors scholarships and organizations that support young people who want to make a difference in the
community and the lives of other, just as Welles did.
“I get emotional every time I hear Welles’ story,” says Olivia. “It’s very moving to hear of someone voluntarily risking their life in order to save so many others. I love that BC dedicates so much of the month of October to honoring Welles and his family. The Red Bandana is a symbol of service and pride here at BC. Other than the eagle (Boston College’s mascot), I think it’s the best way to represent our community.”
