About This Activity

The Julie Rodick Scholarship Foundation was created in 1993 by a few of Julie's family members and friends.  This was in response to Julie's untimely death at age 30.  Julie was active in the community and was thinking of graduate school  or law school.  Her accomplishments include being elected first female student president at Umass/Boston.  She also set up Boston's chapter of the Guardian Angels.  Julie was active in helping the homeless and donated time at the Pine Street Inn.  She was also into American Indian Culture.

 Julie tragically died in a car crash on August 8, 1993.  It was a very sad event yet family and friends thought that a scholarship set up in Julie's name would be a great way to remember her.  We thought a road race would be a great way to bring people together in Julies name and because she liked Indian Culture we established The DreamCatcher Classic Road Race.  The first race was held that same year on Thanksgiving Day.  We now hold a 5-mile and 2-mile road race every Thanksgiving Day at 8 am. The first race had 250 participants, we now have over 1400 runners each year.

 We award 2-$1000.00 scholarships to Umass/Boston students going from undergraduate to graduate school each year.

 We hope you will join us each year to keep this tradition alive in Julies name while at the same time helping with the scholarship and keeping yourself healthy.
