The scholarship fund (ACSF) and memorial run was established in 2011.  Over $85K in scholarships have been awarded to students playing student lacrosse athletes in pursuit of education.  In October 2017 the ACSF will benefit the AACC Foundation AND Archbishop Spalding High School Scholorship Fund.  The AACC Foundation and Archbishop Spalding High School will award one scholarship each to a worthy student.  He/She will be selected by a team of AACC and ASH adminstrators based on a list of pre-outlined criteria.  Each AACC and AHS recipient can only be a one time receiver of this scholarship. 

Al's Run, the only fundraiser for the ACSF, is lucky to set up a picturesque course at Anne Arundel Community College (just minutes from Al's hometown of Annapolis). This location is central to most local highways and holds importance in that many friends, family, and new runners can travel at ease to this location

The memorial run is a family focused, timed event which awards first place participants in male/female age catagories.  It continues to be supported by the surrounding communities and it is an exciting experience that will help keep the spirit of Al - who also ran in road races as well as for fitness.  Al's Run is an established event that will keep replenishing the ACSF each year so it can continue to award derserving students who exemplify a zest for life he impressed upon all of those who call him friend.
