    On July 15, John O'Malley '87 will embark upon the inaugural ROAR: The Ryan O'Malley Annual Ride, a 547 mile journey on the Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango, in support of the Ryan O'Malley '99 Memorial Scholarship.

    After Ryan's passing in 2011, his family established the scholarship in his memory to enable Computer Science students of limited resources with an interest in fitness to attend The University of Scranton. Since that time, Ryan's family and friends have raised more than $100,000 for the scholarship, much of it through ROAR: The Ryan O'Malley Annual Race, a 5K fundraising event the family organized from 2013-2017.

    This year, John, Ryan's brother, will continue to raise money for the scholarship with the self-supported ride along the Colorado Trail, a journey that will take him 12-14 days to complete. Paul Curtis '99, Ryan's friend and classmate, will join John for a portion of the ride, which will directly benefit the scholarship fund.
