scholarships at Penn State Hershey Medical School and Ohio University College
of Osteopathic Medicine, and high school scholarships at DuBois Area High School
and DuBois Area Catholic Schools.
Luanne Varacallo said that there
was a great turn out and a lot of people tried spinning and Zumba a new thing
for many of them. She also said she was thankful to everyone who came and
supported the Ride/Walk.

honor of Dr Albert Varacello who died in an accident while riding his bike in July2010
and is made possible every year by his family and their friends and the
community that participates.
