Welcome Back!

Our annual scholarships for South Kingstown High School seniors were presented to Erin Hurley and Samantha Fish, class of 2021 SKHS.   This year marks the 21st anniversary of Kerri’s passing. 

 We look forward to seeing everyone August 7, 2022!  


The Run 4 Kerri is a nonprofit charity organization that was developed to raise funds to sponsor a variety of charitable endeavors.  The race was created to preserve the memory of the late Kerri Lynn Bessette who passed away at 19 years old in April 2001. Kerri succumb to complications resulting from bacterial meningitis while a freshman student and athlete at LaSalle University in Philadelphia. Over the past years The Run 4 Kerri has been able to donate yearly to a memorial scholarship for senior female track and field athletes at South Kingstown High School to offset college expenses.  Over time we have also added sponsoring the Narragansett Youth Track Series which allows children 13 and under to participate in track and field events to emphasis and promote self-confidence, sportsmanship, and fun.
