Arielle Newman, sister of Troop 37 Scout Keith Newman and Alumni – Eagle Scout Kyle Newman, was an award-winning track and cross country runner for Notre Dame Academy High School, Staten Island. She was the 2005 and 2006 Staten Island Girls High School Varsity Cross Country Champion. Arielle was a captain of the track team and voted MVP. She was a Staten Island Advance All Star four times, once posthumously. Arielle died April 3, 2007 from an aspirin-like ingredient, methyl salicylate, found in muscle creams.
This Run is in her honor and to foster awareness of the dangers of this ingredient.
