Experience the 18th Annual Katie Westbrook 5K Race & Dog Walk!

The School of Law student body dedicates this race in memory of Katie Westbrook, whose dream at age 13 was to become a lawyer. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, which took her life at age 15, just a few hours before she was to receive an honorary degree from the law school. Although Katie was never able to fulfill her dream of becoming an attorney, we honor her memory and dream to become a Duquesne Lawyer, with all race proceeds benefitting the Public Interest Law Association Fellowships.
