More than 60 runners participating in Saturday’s Crazylegs Classic will run in memory of Adam Nickel , a UW-Madison School of Pharmacy student who died after completing last month’s Little Rock Marathon.
To celebrate his life and memory, friends from Pharmacy, across campus and Group Health Cooperative, where he had been interning, formed the R.A.N. (Remembering Adam Nickel) Team. They will run Crazylegs wearing special shirts and buttons. In addition, the School of Pharmacy has set up the Adam Nickel Memorial Scholarship Fund though the UW Foundation to honor a PharmD student with a passion for athletics and exercise and a commitment to helping others as evidenced by fund raising activities or community service.
