The Andover Townsman
As thousands began gathering for this morning's Step Up for Colleen 5K in Andover, the family of Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer released a video thanking supporters for their outpouring of support since their daughter's murder last fall.
The video includes Ritzer's father, Tom; mother, Peggie; sister, Laura; and brother, Dan, standing united in expressing their gratitude to the people of their hometown of Andover as well as Danvers and beyond.
The first 5K run/walk in Ritzer's memory is set to begin at 9 a.m. at The Park at Chestnut and Bartlet streets in downtown Andover.
