The Ryan O'Malley Annual Race (ROAR) Committee, along with The University of Scranton, invite you to run, walk or cheer on the participants in the First Annual ROAR 5K Run/Walk. All proceeds benefit the Ryan T. O'Malley '99 Memorial Scholarship at The University of Scranton. This scholarship will enable computer science students who are committed to fitness and community service and who have limited resources to attend the University of Scranton. Registration at 7 AM; race starts at 9 AM. Cost $25/adult; $15/children; $7/children under 12.
The scholarship was established in Ryan's memory by his parents, Dr. John and Helene O'Malley, along with Ryan's siblings, John, Ed, Julie, Diane and Erin. An avid runner, Ryan used his fitness gifts to benefit others. How fitting that a 5K run be the inaugural event of the fundraising campaign for a scholarship bearing his name.
A Mass, celebrated by former bishop James Timlin, will be held prior to the race on Saturday, May 18, at 5 PM at Madonna della Strada Chapel at the University of Scranton. Following Mass, an Irish Carbo-Load Party will be held at 6:30 PM at Elm Park Church, 712 Linden Street, Scranton. Tickets for the party are $20/adults and $15/children age 12 and under.
