BBC&S hosting local benefit race
A two-mile run/walk around the BBC&S campus will raise funds for a scholarship honoring a local high school student killed in a April 2010 auto accident.
The first Kristyn E. Kromko Memorial Scholarship Race begins on Saturday, July 16, at 9 a.m., on campus. It will go until about noon.
The scholarship fund was established by the Kromko family and will benefit a graduating senior from nearby Abington Heights High School.
Kristyn's aunt, Ruth Mancuso of Tunkhannock, PA, spoke with BBC Athletic Director and Head Men's Basketball Coach Mike Show about hosting the event.
"We are glad to do this," Coach Show said. "It's important to be a part of the community."
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 18th birthday would have been July 25.
More than $1,000 was raised through a car wash and band benefit for the scholarship's first recipient, Elena deSoto, in Abington Heights' Class of 2011.
Registration runs 7 - 8:30 a.m., Saturday. The entrance fee is $15. Pre-registration forms are online at neparunner.com. For details, call 614-1293 or 836-7795.
