Health and exercise were extremely important to Alie. Remembering vacations with Alie, she would be the last one to go to bed and the first one up to run the beach in the morning. Even days of relaxing in the pool, she would be doing jumping jacks in the pool. Staying active was important to Alie so what better way to celebrate her life than a 5K. Let's walk or run in honor of Alie. Let's make her proud.

When & Where
Alie Reichling Memorial Scholarship Fund
The family of Alie Reichling has established a scholarship in her name after her untimely passing earlier this year due to complications from routine surgery at Johns Hopkins. She was just 24 years old. The Alie Reichling Memorial Scholarship Fund was founded at her alma mater, Virginia Tech, to be awarded to a student that best embodies the same exceptional qualities as Alie.
Alie’s laugh and charismatic personality lit up every room and she was dedicated to her school, community, family and friends. Her coordination of touching events such as nursing home dances with fellow students left a lasting impression on all involved. She was deeply engaged with the Actively Caring for People organization and her life was devoted to helping others.
Alie made a lasting impact on everyone she ever met and pushed others to be the "good" in the world. She loved to make people happy and she put her whole heart into everything she did. Alie shared God's love which shined through her love for life. Being a part of Alie's life was a wonderful blessing. Anyone who ever met Alie is a better person for having known her. Her passion for God, life, family and friends is a great model of how we should all live. Alie's spirit will never be forgotten, she will always live on in our hearts.
