Dave's 5K memorial aids fund

The second annual Dave Stefanovige Memorial 5K run took place on Saturday, Nov. 17. The 5K run was setup as a memorial in honor of Dave Stefanovige after a tragic car accident last year.The funds of this event were set aside to raise money for a scholarship fund in his name.

The event was sponsored by the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, Finish Line, and SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise). This year the run gathered 62 runners to participate in the 5K in Stefanovige's honor, and raised over $1,000 for the scholarship.

Different members of the Selinsgrove and Shamokin community participated in the run.
Sophomore Alex Beale said, "It was really neat to have so many different members of the community to come out and support Dave."

Stefanovige graduated in May 2011 with a degree in communications and an emphasis in broadcasting. He was a brother of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity.

While at Susquehanna, Stefanovige used his knowledge to help the school with new technology equipment which included the JumboTron at Lopardo Stadium. Stefanovige had recently been hired by the Boys Scouts of America as a district executive before he passed at age 22.

With the annual running of the Dave Stefanovige Memorial 5K, the new scholarship will be giving back to students now and in the future, as well as giving the community here at Susquehanna a reason to go out and run.
