2nd Annual Lt. Joseph Szczerba ’85 5K Walk/Run – Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013, 8:30 a.m.


In September 2011, Salesianum lost one of its own when New Castle County Lt. Joseph Szczerba ’85 tragically fell in the line of duty. To honor his legacy, Salesianum School, police officers, and friends and family of Joe are joining together to host the 2nd Annual Lt. Joseph Szczerba '85 Memorial 5K Walk/Run at Salesianum School on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 8:30 a.m.

Proceeds will directly benefit a scholarship in Joe’s name, and assist sons of police officers and first responders in attending Salesianum. Last year's 5K raised more than $30,000 to establish the scholarship.

There are several ways you can support the establishment of the scholarship and/or the 5K:

Participate in the race by registering online at www.races2run.com. Students can register at www.salesianum.org/events for a special price. You can also register via PDF form.

Have your business sponsor the race. Sponsorship levels are included in the PDF form.

Make a direct contribution to the scholarship through the Fund for Salesianum. You can make an online contribution at www.salesianum.org/giving. (Please mark “Other” in the contribution box, and then denote Szczerba 5K).

For questions about the 5K or contributions to Joe’s scholarship fund, please contact Jon Allison ’97 at (302) 356-2643 or jallison@salesianum.org.
