The Be Kind 5 K fun run/walk endows a scholarship fund created at WCA Foundation in Rosie Billquist’s memory. The name of the race comes from the quote Rosie painted on a bench she created for patients to use outside UPMC Chautauqua WCA where she worked. It reads: “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” Rosie was a joyful, kind-hearted individual who loved to run and to help others. Thank you for doing the same by supporting this event.
