Alex Wake Run
About Alex Wake...
Alex Wake, a gentle, talented 14 year old student at Baldwin, was the victim of a horrific act of domestic violence that took not only her life, but that of her mother and grandparents on January 15, 2002.
Alex was an extraordinary young woman whose tragic death was an enormous loss to our community. Her contributions as a scholar, athlete and friend were invaluable. A hard working, intellectual Baldwin girl, she was empathetic and believed in building bridges and breaking down walls. Alex was a member of our cross country and track teams and this memorial run and walk is the medium by which we celebrate her life.
This event continues to provide our community at Baldwin and on the Main Line with a better understanding of and the resources available for women’s health, empowerment of women, and combating domestic violence.
In addition to funding an endowed scholarship in Alex’s name, a percentage of the proceeds will help underwrite Blue Gray’s other endeavors in support of Baldwin athletics, which include educational programs, facility upgrades, and new equipment.
