On Sunday, October 23, 2022 our annual Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K race will take place along the Burlington Bike Path. The race will start at 10:00 AM at Switchback Brewing Co., 160 Flynn Ave, Burlington. We suggest arriving 15-20 minutes early to park and pick up your race bib.

This year marks the 10th reunion of Sarah’s Champlain Class of 2012 and we are very proud to be a part of Champlain College Family Weekend. With the help of Sarah’s friends, friends of the Ramsey family, and the Champlain College community, we have created a lasting legacy in honor of Sarah’s memory. Our fundraising efforts continue to support the Sarah Ramsey ’12 Endowed Scholarship award, now in its ninth year. This year we have established the new Sarah Ramsey Innovation Fund to broaden our commitment to support innovation and entrepreneurship in ways that exemplify Sarah’s passion and energy for thinking big and making an impact.

We invite all current and past students and their friends and families to join everyone from the Burlington community to participate in our family-friendly Sarah Ramsey Strong 5K walk/run. Immediately following the race, we will host lunch at Switchback and award prizes to to the top runners at the race.

About Us

The Sarah Ramsey Strong Fund (SRSF) was established in memory of Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey whose life was tragically cut short one year after her graduation from Champlain College, Class of ’12. 

We believe in creating opportunities for young people to explore their passions, overcome challenges and follow their hearts. Our mission is to invest in programs at Champlain College that foster an environment of innovation, creativity and collaboration.

We invite you to view this short video to learn more about Sarah Ramsey, and our commitment to helping students make an impact in the world, just as Sarah did during her all too short life.
