Stepping up for Colleen (2024)


A large crowd turned out Sunday for the 11th annual Step Up for Colleen 5K Walk/Run in Andover. Members of the crowd were decked out in their pink race shirts as they sought to raise money for charity and celebrate the life of Colleen Ritzer of Andover, a Danvers High School teacher who was murdered in October 2013. Members of the Ritzer family were on hand – her parents Tom and Peggie, sister Laura and brother Dan – to honor Colleen’s commitment to help and inspire others. Boston Bruins national anthem singer Todd Angilly turned out for the event as did mascots for the New England professional sports teams, including Pat Patriot and Bruins mascot Blade.
