The Andy Washnik Scholarship Fund

Andy Washnik was an invaluable volunteer coach for the Park Ridge Spring Track and Field Team. His love for the sport and event radiated from his smile every day of his life and it was his love for Track and Field that helped Andy battle cancer so valiantly. A graduate of Northern Valley Old Tappan, Andy was a decorated sprinter and jumper; but his true love was pole vault. It gave Andy great pleasure to coach the pole vault, not just for his ’Ridgers’ but also for all athletes involved in the event. Sadly, Andy lost his battle with cancer, but his love for the sport continues to shine on in the eyes of his athletes and fellow coaches. The Andy Washnik Pole Vault Festival is in Andy’s memory and is based on his love of vaulting and passing that love on to others.

All donations will presented in a scholarship fund to a Bergen County Pole Vaulter/s in Andy Washnik's name.
