BBC&S is host venue for local benefit race

A two-mile run/walk around the BBC&S campus is set to raise funds in honor of a local high school student killed in a April 2010 auto accident.

The third annual Kristyn E. Kromko Memorial Scholarship Race is Saturday, July 20, at 9 a.m., on campus. The first two events in 2011 and 2012 were also held at BBC&S. Organizers worked with BBC Director of Athletics and Head Men's Basketball Coach Mike Show to schedule the event.

The scholarship fund was established by the Kromko family and will benefit a graduating senior from nearby Abington Heights High School.

Kristyn would have been a member of the 2012 senior class at Abington Heights. She was 16 when her car crashed on Route 307 in Newton Township. Her 20th birthday would have been July 25.

Registration begins at 7 a.m. The entrance fee is $15. Details are online at To learn more, call Ruth Mancuso at 315.877.5575 or Kate Grow at 570.575.6222.

Record times for the run were posted in 2011 by Sean Burke (11:22) and Steph Lalos (12:44). Leading walk times were logged in 2012 by Stephen Kirby (27:19) and Malana Nester (22:35).
