The 32nd Annual Kenneth Dolan Memorial 5k Run
Sunday, June 6, 2021 - Prospect Park Brooklyn, New York - Wave start of 50 runners every 30 minutes - No race day registration.


Kenny Dolan was alive for a brief 23 years.  Yet in that time, he not only brought a tremendous amount of joy to a great number of people, but more importantly, he taught them how to laugh, love and have fun.

Tragically, on March 14, 1990 Kenny passed away as a result of an automobile accident.  The Kenny Dolan Memorial Fund at Iona College has been established from this race to assist a student in need of financial support for his or her education. It is in this spirit that Kenny will be remembered.
