Howard Community College 5K Challenge Race Raises Over $85,000 for Student Scholarships

Columbia, MD – Heavy rain held off just long enough for more than 400 participants to run, climb, and crawl an obstacle-filled course during Howard Community College’s (HCC) fourth annual 5K Challenge Race, held on the college’s campus on Sunday, October 29, 2017. Thanks to teams from 50 sponsoring organizations in addition to college employees, students, and alumni teams, the HCC Educational Foundation raised more than $85,000 to support student scholarships.

The overall Corporate Challenge Champion goes to Harkins Builders.

Sponsoring organizations also competed for one of seven challenges, with winners as follows: Howard County Police (Challenge Award); Morgan-Keller Construction (Design & Construction Challenge); M&T Bank (Finance Challenge); In-Depth Engineering (Information Technology Challenge); Howard Hughes Corporation (Real Estate Challenge); Howard County General Hospital (Wellness Challenge); and LifeSpan Network – Beacon Institute (Silver Challenge). Rouse Scholars won the HCC alumni, Faculty/Staff category, and X-Ray claimed the HCC Student Team award.

Winners of the fastest course time were Stewart Reich (male, 14:59.9) and his wife, Stephanie Reich (17:47.3), both of Morgan-Keller Construction.
