It was a spectacular day for the second annual Step Up for Colleen 5K on Sunday in memory of Andover's Colleen Ritzer.

Upwards of 3,000 family, friends, colleagues and others from Andover to Danvers and beyond who were touched by the young teacher's life gathered to honor the legacy of the beloved Danvers High School math teacher.

Everything in Andover came up pink for the morning in tribute to the 24-year-old who was found slain, allegedly by one of her students, in October 2013.

We'll have a full report of the event in Thursday's Andover Townsman.
