New Rochelle, NY (June 8, 2015) Two Iona College students were this year’s scholarship recipients through the generosity of Mrs. Ann Dolan and the proceeds from the 26th Annual Kenneth Dolan Memorial Run held on Sunday, June 7, in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.

This is the first year the run benefitted two students with scholarship awards. John Murphy ’18 and Katie McManamon ’17 were this year’s recipients and participated in the 5K race.

The event has taken place each year since 1990 in memory of former Iona student Kenny Dolan, who passed away tragically on March 14, 1990, in an automobile accident. The Kenny Dolan Memorial Fund at Iona College has been established from this race to assist students at Iona.
