Mark your calendars! The Fourth Annual Ali's Run, a 5K run/walk, will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 15. The race benefits William & Mary's Alan Bukzin Memorial Bone Marrow Drive and will begin and end in Bicentennial Park on Newport Avenue in Williamsburg (one block from the Law School). The Law School's Bone Marrow Drive Committee first sponsored this event in 2005 in honor of Ali Kaplan, daughter of Associate Dean Rob Kaplan. Ali died in 1997 when she was 12 from aplastic anemia.
