The 2018 Challenge Race.

Columbia, MD – It was an eventful day at Howard Community College (HCC) on Sunday, October 14, 2018, where more than 450 participants flocked to the college’s campus to run, climb, and crawl an obstacle-filled course for the fifth annual 5K Challenge Race, presented by Havtech. With support from 70 sponsoring organizations and companies, in addition to college employee, student, and alumni teams, the HCC Educational Foundation raised $111,300 to support student scholarships. 

The overall Corporate Challenge Champion goes to Harkins Builders.
