Christopher A. Taddeo Memorial Scholarship


        Chris Taddeo was a 2008 graduate from Cicero North Syracuse High School. He started his running career when he was in 8th grade on the modified cross country team. He was not naturally fast but with good coaching and steady training he continued to improve all through high school. He continued running on the cross country and track teams at the University of Rochester and graduated in 2012. After graduating college, he continued to run and improve. He won many races in the CNY area in the past year and participated in a half marathon. In October 2013 Chris’s journey through life ended too early. Running and being physically fit was Chris’s passion in life. He consistently set new goals and strived to beat his personal best at every race. Please join us in running while we remember Chris’s life and how much he loved to run.


Please donate to the Christopher A. Taddeo Memorial Scholarship to go to a CNS track and cross country member.
