Lauryn’s life was cut short in a tragic accident when visiting her alma mater of Villanova University in October 2011. Lauryn, a financial analyst at PNC Bank, had many passions and two of them were running and Make-A-Wish®.
To honor her wish to help others, Laps for Lauryn: The Lauryn E. Ossola 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, August 18th, 2013, at North Park. The event will be a 3.1 mile run/walk starting at the Boathouse in North Park in McCandless Township, PA. Lauryn loved to run and give her time and support to charity, and in the fall of 2011, she participated in a 5K at the Boathouse course in support of a charity close to her family.
