Nina Brekelman Memorial Run/Walk
This coming June, it will be two years since Nina Brekelmans, a MAAS alumna, died in a tragic fire just weeks after graduation. Nina was passionate about the Arabic language and about running, and she found ways to combine her love for the region with her passion for this sport. To read more about Nina's life, please see her memorial page.
Last year, her family and friends launched the "Nina Brekelmans Memorial Foundation" and, through the generosity of many who knew and loved Nina, were able to endow a scholarship at CCAS and launch a running camp for girls in Jordan. Nina had spent a year as a CASA fellow in Jordan, and was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to continue her work there.
This year, we invite you to gather for a run (or walk if you prefer), some food and a chance to gather in Nina's memory on Sunday April 23. We will start gathering at 8:30 am.
