Adam Thompson 5K Run/Walk

A record-breaking crowd of more than 500 participated in the 4th Annual Adam Thompson 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, April 26th.  

The race, hosted by The Thompson Family, the Harford Community College Foundation and The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation was a success in every aspect raising more than 30,000

Proceeds benefit the The Adam Thompson Memorial Nursing Scholarship at Harford Community College and The Adam Thompson Memorial Education Scholarship at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health. Both scholarships support students attending Harford Community College. The event honors the memory of Adam Thompson, a first-year HCC student who was killed in an automobile accident in 2011. 

The event had many components, including a 5K race and walk, exhibitors, screenings, a children’s play area and appearances by mascots Poe, the Oriole Bird, the Towson Tiger and HCC’s very own Screech. The overall male race winner was Geoffrey Rinehart, who completed the race in 19:39 and the overall female winner was Jennifer Snyder who finished in 23:57. 

“My heart is so full because of the support of the community for this race. We broke records for both attendance and for funds raised by the race,” said Dr. Pat Thompson. “Thanks to the support of all involved, we will be able to increase the number of scholarships we are giving to deserving students at Harford Community College. I can’t think of a better way to honor the memory of my son.”
