Vigil Held At St. Vincent St. Mary For Cleveland Marathon Runner

Akron - Close friends, family members and more from the Saint Vincent Saint Mary community came out to remember a recent graduate who died running the Cleveland Marathon Sunday.

22-year-old Taylor Ceepo died after collapsing Sunday with just under a mile left in her run.

Ceepo, who graduated from St. V's in 2015 and recently Walsh University in Medina, had been a model student and soccer star at both schools before her passing.

"I got the text and was just in shock", said St. V President Tom Carone. "We say it as kind of a cliche but it's true, were family here...It's tough. If you were around the school over the past five years, you knew who Taylor was."

To this point, it is not clear what caused Ceepo to collapse and eventually lose her life. The coroner is investigating.
