Great group of participants!

Nicholas Kovaleski

Thank you for taking the time to learn about the Nicholas Kovaleski Scholarship Fund.

August of 2010: Nicholas was an energetic, active 14 year old teenager. He was actively involved in his church, community and school. He was a swimmer, football & tennis player, also working on becoming an Eagle Scout.

On Septembr 1, 2010, Nicholas was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia and a journey began that no children should go through. After ten months of chemo, radiation, bone marrow transplant and many reactions to his treatments, Nicholas was taken away from his family, friends and a community that inspired, on June 29, 2011.

The Kovaleski family has started a scholarship in Nicholas’ memory that is different than others. The Nicholas Kovaleski Scholarship is awarded to an Albion graduating senior who has displayed the drive and desire to live a purposeful life; already exemplifying good character, ideals and citizenship. These students demonstrate the importance of family and community in connections and responsibilities in their daily lives. This monetary award is presented at class night to the student(s) who have already shown that they “Live with Purpose”, Nicholas’ motto.

Every December, Gotta Dance Studio with Miss Amy Sidari  presents a Hometown Christmas at the Holy Family Church Lyceum in Albion, N.Y.. The event includes singing,  by Josie Waverly, Marcy Downey, Gary Simboli and many others, beautiful dancing and traditional holiday activities. A raffle is also held to fund the Nicholas Kovaleski Scholarship.

This event is sponsored by The Salmon Children’s Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit Corporation and Public Charity. The objective is to ease the burden and directly influence the lives of families with kids who have been affected by a dreadful illness or accident.

This is a yearly fundraiser
