Beaver Alumni Society raises $1,320 at second annual 5K walk/run

The Penn State Beaver Alumni Society’s second annual 5K walk/run netted $1,320. Ninety-eight people participated in the race, which was held May 17 in downtown Beaver.

The campus donated half of the proceeds to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Beaver County, which provided some assistance for the event and which has a partnership with Beaver campus students who serve as “bigs” and “littles” for area children. In the men’s divisions, the three top trophy winners were Nick Tocci, first-place; Clark Cicone, second place; and Austin Obenauf, third place. Winners in the women’s divisions were Katie Alexander, first place; Amanda Tocci, second place; and Leah Logue, third place.

The 5K committee was chaired in 2013 and this year by Jason Barr, a Penn State alumnus who is an engineer with BASF in Monaca. Other committee members were Sarah Chimile, Kelly Konstantakis, Pam Konstantakis, Norm Kraus, George Logue, Susan Mals, Julia McDowell, Terry McDowell, Lynell Scaff and Bob Uhriniak. The date of the 2015 5K run/walk will be announced at a later time.
