In Memory of Walter Carter

16 years ago a former police aide at ASU Polytechnic by the name of Walter Carter decided to organize a fundraiser in the form of a 5k Fun Run, Fun Walk, and Kids Run. He truly cared about the well being of students at ASU, and wanted to help raise money for scholarships at ASU that would help students graduate from Arizona State University. Today, we honor his memory and the tradition he started 15 years ago by continuing the Sun Devil Drumstix Dash, a free event to the community. We still accept donations for the scholarship fund in memory and honor of him.
