On the last day of the 1998 Anchor House Ride for Runaways, one of the participants’ 15-year-old Cory Golis of Hopewell Township, was struck and tragically killed by a car.
After his death, Cory’s family in conjunction with Anchor House, created a scholarship fund in Cory’s name, the Cory Golis / Anchor House Foundation Scholarship Fund. The goal is to provide tuition assistance to deserving high school students or recent high school graduates in support of their higher education needs, whether it is college, trade, or technical school.
In January 1999, the Anchor House Ride for Runaways Planning Committee authorized a committee of five individuals to plan and coordinate the first annual “Cory’s Ride”. The purpose of the Ride was not only to raise money for the Scholarship Fund, but to continue to honor Cory’s memory.
Last year we awarded $18,000 to 11 amazing young men and women."
Thank you so much.
