About the Race

Dr. Stephen LoRusso has been teaching at Saint Francis University for 16 years and is a member of the exercise physiology and physical therapy faculty. Over the years, he has taught many classes in the School of Health Sciences. Most memorable for many is Summer Human Gross Anatomy (required for all PT students). Dr. LoRusso was inspired to train and run this 5k to support the Saint Francis Exercise Physiology Academic Bowl Team. The team won the regional Academic Bowl at the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference (MARC) in Harrisburg in November. The team is fundraising for their trip to Indianapolis to compete at the national ACSM meeting at the end of May. Team members include Brandt Beck, Steve Mosey, and Katrina Wilhite. The team is directed by Dr. LoRusso, Dr. Patricia Fitzgerald, Dr. Kristofer Wisnieswski, and Melinda Krimmel.
