Chuck Pacholkiw Memorial Scholarship 5K


About This Activity

This 4th annual scholarship 5K race/walk honors Charles (Chuck) Pacholkiw, a graduate of the Bowie High Class of 2005 and a brilliant, diligent, passionate math and physics student.

Chuck Pacholkiw: After graduating from Bowie High, he attended the University of Maryland, where he continued to shine academically even after his diagnosis of advanced stage IV adenocarcinoma cancer. Chuck died in November 2010 at the age of 23, just a few credits away from finishing his physics degree.

In 2011, a scholarship fund was established in Chuck’s memory for Bowie High students pursuing a math, science or physics major in college. 100% of the proceeds from this race will go toward the Chuck Pacholkiw Memorial Scholarship to help a deserving graduating senior get a chance at becoming the next Stephen Hawking. It is the hope that this scholarship will honor Chuck’s memory by keeping his academic ambitions alive.
