About This Activity

The scholarship fund (ACSF) and memorial run was established in 2011.  Over $75K in scholarships have been awarded to students playing lacrosse in college over the past 5 years.  In October 2016 the ACSF will benefit the AACC Foundation c/o the ACSF.  The AACC Foundation will award one scholarship to a worthy student.  He/She will be selected by a team of AACC adminstrators based on a list of criteria.  Each AACC recipient can only be a one time receiver of this scholarship.

Al's Run, the only fundraiser for the ACSF, and is being re-established ithis October 2016. It is now a 5K and the Al's Run location has moved to the campus of Anne Arundel Community College (just minutes from Al's hometown of Annapolis).

The memorial run is a family focused, timed event which awards first place participants in male/female age catagories.  It continues to be supported by the surrounding communities and it is an exciting experience that will help keep the spirit of Al - who also ran in road races and for fitness.  Al's Run is an established event that will keep replenishing the ACSF each year so it can continue to award derserving students.
