It was a run to remember at the annual Red Bandana 5k this past weekend, where our Chestnut Hill team laced up their running shoes to support the Red Bandana Project. Held every October at Boston College, the race celebrates and honors the life of Welles Crowther, a hero of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Crowther was working in his office in the South Tower of the WTC when the plane hit and he sprang into hero mode. Crowther saved dozens of lives before losing his own when the building collapsed.
The Red Bandana 5k reflects Crowther’s nickname, which he got from always carrying a red bandana with him. After his death, Crowthers’ parents founded the Red Bandana Project, which focuses on character development in classrooms, sports teams, camps and youth programs.
Thank you to our team members who showed their support!
