This Alex Wake ’05 Memorial 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk is held annually to raise awareness of domestic violence and to celebrate the life of Alex Wake ’05, who was a victim of domestic violence. Alex was a joyful and vibrant member of the community and an enthusiastic participant in school activities including the Cross Country and Winter Track Teams. Her contributions to our community as a scholar, athlete and friend were invaluable. This Run/Walk offers something for everyone, from competitive runners to the youngest children. In Alex’s honor, Baldwin established the Alex Wake ’05 Memorial Scholarship Fund. The purpose of this endowed fund is to assist a qualified young woman such as Alex in the pursuit of a college preparatory education at The Baldwin School. Proceeds from this event directly benefit the scholarship.
