Welcome To The
Nicholas Rossomando 9/11 Memorial Scholarship Fund Website
Nick was a fireman with the elite rescue company located on Staten Island, Rescue 5.
Nick along with his fellow firefighters from that company answered the call to the World Trade Center on 9/11/01.
Nick gave his life while saving others.
He was 35.
Nick was a ﬁreﬁghter who lost his life on 9/11/01 while saving others. We created this fund to honor him and to keep his memory alive. We continue his legacy of helping others by presenting, on an annual basis, a monetary award to two Port Richmond High School graduating student athletes, who will be going on to college. The criteria: They must have faced great adversity, conquered it and gone on to achieve!
NICK'S FUND WILL NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN THE 2014 ING NYC MARATHON. PLEASE KEEP CHECKING THE WEBSITE FOR INFORMATION ABOUT OUR NEXT FUNDRAISER.
The ING NYC Marathon has come and gone and the NYRR has already geared up for the 2014 race. This year our charity had little representation for 2013. We recruited two team members, the rest of the team consisted mainly of 2012 runners who were so sadly deferred to the 2013 marathon due to the cancellation of the 2012 race. If you recollect, Super Storm Sandy rocked the East coast with a vengeance, making it impossible to hold the 2012 ING NYC Marathon. Why we did so poorly in the area of recruitment is a mystery even to us.
