The final Ryan O’Malley Annual Race (the ROAR 5k) will take place on 5.06.17 – The University of Scranton’s third annual Day of Giving. To signify the joining of these two events, this year’s race will be called the ROAR 5.06k and will introduce participants to a new running route that begins and ends on campus. It is a true celebration of our strong community and brings together people to help carry out the ROAR mission: to support healthy bodies and healthy minds.
A beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, Ryan was an avid runner who used his fitness gifts to benefit others. The ROAR 5K celebrates Ryan's commitment to helping others through fitness. Proceeds from the event benefit the Ryan T. O'Malley '99 Memorial Scholarship at The University of Scranton. The scholarship provides financial aid to a student pursuing a Computer Science degree at University 0f Scranton and who also show commitment to fitness and community service.
