BENEFITING: ILLINOIS CENTRAL COLLEGE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 29, 2013
I am running the Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon in memory of my mother who passed away, suddenly, in 2008. The Carol A. Penca Scholarship Fund at Illinois Central College was set up to provide need-based scholarships to students in the Peoria, IL public school system so they can pursue a post-secondary education. The scholarships are awarded to those students who are determined to "rise above" their current circumstances and pursue the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to secure a better future.
