The Strive for Five Accomplished at the HCC Challenge Run!
For the fifth year in a row, Harkins is the overall Corporate Challenge Champion of the Howard Community College Challenge Race! This is the sixth annual 5K Challenge Race, focusing on corporate health and wellness programs for small and large organizations in our community. This year’s elite fleet consisted of 89 teams, made up of almost 500 participants. The Challenge 5K is a team event where individuals race for the fastest combined score as they run, climb, and crawl through an obstacle-filled course on the college’s campus.
The race raised over $116,000! Proceeds goes to support HCC’s student scholarship programs, allowing many HCC students to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.
As a team, Harkins’ Team 1 came in 2nd, 6th, 7th, and 15th with an aggregate time of 19:53. This was made up of Ethan Burbridge with a time of 18:00, Landon Leatherman with a time of 19:05, Josh Turskey with a time of 19:08, and Alan Kratz with a time of 22:01.
Congrats to all of this year’s runners and participants for being such a worthy cause.
