About Royce

The 5K Run by the Bay is dedicated to the memory of Royce Whitaker, a Bay Farm student who lost his life in 2009.

Though tragically cut short, Royce packed a lot into his 7 years of life with us.

Royce was an awesome skier — he practically skied out of his mom’s belly! He loved all things outdoors from climbing, to biking to exploring.  He could tell you every line from Star Wars and Indiana Jones and loved to be quizzed on both.  And he loved ice cream and reading and all things space.

We will all miss Royce so much.  May you keep him in your hearts as much as we will keep him in our ours.
