The family and friends of Gabe Pacione have created this Memorial Scholarship Fund in his name to recognize high school seniors who have achieved success through hard work and dedication, and share their enthusiasm by encouraging the pursuit of excellence by others. These are the traits that Gabe most admired.

Gabe’s Fund also looks to support high school running programs that provide students with opportunities to stretch themselves in new ways, and inspire one another to reach higher and learn to achieve. We believe that a commitment to excellence and leadership in sport can translate to excellence in the classroom and leadership in the community. Performance at the highest level demands personal dedication and respect for teamwork and collaboration — attributes valued at any stage in life.
