Pelotonia is a grass-roots organization with One Goal: To End Cancer. This year’s College team consists of riders from every class, graduate students, and faculty, and we are SO CLOSE to being the largest Peloton in Team Buckeye! If the thought of getting on a bike again or the fundraising goals of riders seems too daunting, we urge you to become a virtual rider. No riding, no volunteering, just a $10 donation with your registration. It’s the easiest way to become a part of this! Help us become the biggest Peloton in Team Buckeye!

Harry Rozmiarek, DVM ’62, of Philadelphia, PA died unexpectedly in June 2013 at age 74. He obtained his PhD from Ohio State in 1976. Dr. Rozmiarek grew up on a dairy farm in northern Wisconsin, where his interest in veterinary medicine grew and prompted him toward a career in the field, which Dr. Rozmiarek started by attending the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1958. Although he initially planned to care for dairy cows as part of a private practice, Dr. Rozmiarek’s path changed in 1962, when he received a letter drafting him in to the United States Army upon completion of his degree. By the time Dr. Rozmiarek retired from the Army in 1983, he had achieved the rank of Colonel, completed a master’s degree and residency in laboratory animal medicine, become board certified in the field, earned his doctorate in immunology from The Ohio State University, and been elected national President of the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS). A respected and cherished member of Public Responsibility in Medicine & Research (PRIM&R’s) Board of Directors since 1990, more information on Dr. Rozmiarek’s affiliation with PRIM&R can be found here. Beloved husband of Jane and devoted father of Edward (Michele), Daniel, Carol, and Andrew (Lael); also survived by 5 grandchildren, Sarah, Anna, Joshua, Cordelia and Kaikane; and 4 brothers, Irvin, Ralph, Donald and Joseph. Donations in Harry’s memory may be made to the Harry Rozmiarek Animal Science Scholarship Fund sent to Salem Five Bank, 495 Cabot Street, Beverly, MA 01915. The scholarship will be presented to graduates of Pulaski High School, Pulaski, Wisconsin, Harry’s alma mater. His obituary can be found here.
