THE STORY:

 

About The Nicholas Rossomando 9/11 Memorial Scholarship Fund

The events of 9/11 were staggering and left our family reeling with grief and disbelief. Our son and brother was gone. Nick's brother Pete, during the weeks just following 9/11 contacted Port Richmond High School, Nick's Alma Mater and started the ball rolling to establish a fund in Nick's name, in an endeavor to make sure that Nick would never be forgotten and that his legacy of helping others would continue.

When Pete conferred with the Athletic Department at Port Richmond HS, they came up with the criteria to be used to choose the recipient of Nick's scholarship award each year. They decided that two student athletes, one male and one female would receive an award each year. They would have to have been accepted to an accredited college and the criteria for their being considered for this award is they would have had to face great adversity, overcoming it and going on to achieve. Each student would receive $1,000.00 which would be paid directly to the college's Bursar's Office in the student's name.

Our goal always has been to raise enough money so in the future we would be able to give larger awards to more deserving students. We are proud to say that we have been able to accomplish that. Go to our website at www.nicks911collegefund.org and check out our Archive located under the pulldown on the homepage entitled About the Fund.

We are ecstatic that we are able to do this in Nick's memory and at the same time continue his legacy of helping others, and we only have all of you to thank for our success.

Certainly our involvement with ING NYC Marathon Charity Program has given us the ways and means to have a successful fundraiser each year since 2006. Of course, the cancellation of the 2012 was a bummer, our runner's didn't get to run after all their hard work in training and fundraising. The NYRR has done a great job in bringing their dreams to reality one way or another and my 2012 team members will be running in the 2013 Marathon and the 2014 Marathon.

We now look forward to recruiting a fantastic team to run in the 2013 ING NYC Marathon. Could you be a potential runner on Nick's 2013 Marathon Team?
We will have guaranteed entries to offer out, the number of entries is still pending. Our website is under construction and as soon as it is done, you will be able to register to run right at the website, for now though, if you have any interest or desire to run on Nick's Team 2013 please contact us at www.nicksfund@aol.com.
