Description

The University City 5K Benefiting the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship, formerly known as the Pipino Run, was founded by the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Foundation. The Foundation was created by family, friends, and volunteers seeking to stop senseless acts of violence and to preserve their fond memories of Nick Pipino.

Nick was a Drexel University student who was fatally stabbed outside Cavanaugh's Restaurant & Bar on December 19, 1992, where he worked part-time as a bartender while pursuing an undergraduate degree at Drexel. In keeping with Nick's love for the outdoors, the run has been organized since 1993 as a way to make something positive come out of Nick's untimely death.

The Foundation partnered with Drexel University to create scholarship opportunities that enable young individuals to obtain an education without the demands of part-time employment and allows students to focus on their education. The Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Scholarship provides financial assistance and a quality education to enthusiastic students who are eager to meet the realistic demands of the professional world.
