On beautiful sunny Saturday, April 27 the Jersey Shore Running Club hosted the 9th Annual Lake Como 5K in memory of Gránia Maggio MPT‘94.
Gránia graduated from Samson College with a master’s and BS in physical therapy. While at USciences, Gránia designed her own curriculum to include a semester abroad in Ireland. The 5K run supports the Gránia Maggio Study Abroad Endowment Fund originally endowed by Marvin Samsom HonAlm’96. The Maggio Fund assists academically-qualified students who demonstrate financial need with studying abroad.
Gránia was an avid runner and a member of the Jersey Shore Running Club.
There were 437 runners and walkers who finished the race, “a great turnout,” said Gránia’s sister Liz Maggio.
