We invite you to Binghamton Rowing Club's 18th Annual John McKenna IV Memorial 5K run. The event will be held in Binghamton’s West Side at Recreation Park. Proceeds will be split between the Captain John McKenna IV Military Courtesy Room at Albany International Airport and the Binghamton Rowing Club.

On August 16th, 2006 the Binghamton Rowing Club family lost a friend. John McKenna IV attended Binghamton University (1994 1998) and was a valued rower and teammate. John showed dedication not only to his team, but to his nation through service as a United States Marine. It was during his third tour serving in Iraq that this nation lost a great man with an indelible spirit. Read more about the McKenna Story HERE
