All Drexel alumni, students, family and friends are invited to participate in the 22nd Annual University City 5K Run. This annual event was established in 1993 to benefit the Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Foundation, which in partnership with Drexel University, provides scholarship opportunities which enables the student to obtain an education without the demands of part-time employment and allows the student to focus on his or her education.
The Nicholas P. Pipino Memorial Foundation was founded by family, friends, and volunteers seeking to stop senseless acts of violence and also preserve their fond memories of Nick Pipino, a Drexel University student who was fatally stabbed outside Cavanaugh's Restaurant and Bar on December 19, 1992, where he worked part-time as a bartender while pursuing an undergraduate degree at Drexel.
