BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- The 2013 Ron Jankowski Father's Day 5K Run/Walk is set for 8 a.m. June 15 at Briarcliff Manor's Law Memorial Park.
The third annual 5K pays tribute to Briarcliff Manor firefighter and community friend Ron Jankowski. The run starts at 8 a.m. with registration open beginning at 7 a.m. at Law Memorial Park in Briarcliff Manor. The entry fee is $25. Residents can sign up for the event at www.ronjmemorialfund.org.
"The proceeds from the run support our annual scholarships that we offer to graduating seniors from the Briarcliff, Mahopac, and Ossining school districts, as well as one for members of the Briarcliff Manor Fire Department who are enrolled, or will be attending, a college or university in the following year," said Matthew Goldman, a coordinator for the event. "Each year we hold the race on Father's Day weekend as a tribute to Ron; a father, a friend, a village firefighter, and an athlete. The event brings people who knew Ron, and people who have never heard of him, together to help the memorial fund continue Ron's legacy."
