For 29 years, Archbishop Molloy High School has carried on a beloved tradition known as the 5K Fun Run. Each October, as summer turns to fall and classes shift into full gear, students, teachers, alumni, family members and friends have laced up their running shoes and lined up on Manton Street to participate in this friendly yet challenging race through Briarwood. The event was first established as one part of a school-wide celebration at the time. The race was one of the few activities from that celebration that continued annually. While the 5K has featured many amazing runners and unbelievable performances, for many participants the results are not as important as time well-spent with the Stanner community. The event has also hosted a One Mile race and Little One’s Dash, which has kept the day open to literally every kind of runner you can think of.
In 1998, Molloy’s 5K Fun Run was renamed in memory of one of its own: Andrew Harvey. Andrew was a bright, talented young student-athlete who was tragically killed in a train accident during his junior year. He would have graduated as a member of Molloy’s Class of 1998. Andrew’s loss was felt by many, including his large family (many of them Stanners themselves), as well as his track coaches and teammates. Organizers would soon rename the Fun Run in Andrew’s memory, with proceeds to be directed to a scholarship established in his name. These decisions have proved to be a great tribute to a life lost too soon. The Andrew Harvey Memorial Scholarship has helped many deserving young students since its creation.
At the center of the Fun Run for the past 29 years has been Mr. Frank Gambino ’74, a longtime track coach and religion teacher here at his alma mater. Mr. Gambino has been the main organizer of the race since the beginning, and thanks to his dedication and the support of his fellow coaches and many volunteers, the event has always seen great success. Earlier in 2017, however, Mr. Gambino announced that the 30th annual Fun Run would be the final run...Read More
