Healthy minds, healthy bodies, healthy lives. HCC is dedicated to advancing education in our community. Partnering with Columbia Association, whose vision is to make Columbia the community of choice - today and for generations to come. This event focuses on corporate health and wellness programs for small and large organizations in our community.

In 2020, almost 50% of HCC students needed some form of financial aid. Proceeds from this event support HCC’s student scholarship programs, allowing many HCC students to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. Learn where your sponsor dollars are allocated.
