BROOKLYN, NY - Two Iona College students were this year's scholarship recipients through the generosity of Mrs. Ann Dolan and the proceeds from the 29th Annual Kenneth Dolan Memorial Run held on Sunday, June 3, in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The event also doubled as the USA Track & Field New York 5,000-meter championships.

Kaitlyn Kilroy '21 and John Murphy ‘18 earned the honor this year and participated in the 5k race with nearly 550 entrants. Chase Pizzonia '09 (seventh place) and Douglas Holt '12 were the top Iona alumni finishing the event.

The event has been held 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 in need of financial support for his or her education.
