Adam Thompson 5K Run/Walk

April 30, 2017
Campus of Harford Community College
Race begins at 8:00 a.m.

Join more than 400 people for this ever popular event. Explore Harford’s campus along a course that is great for runners and walkers alike!Last year, over $30,000 was raised for 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. More than $120,000 has been raised by the event since its inception.

Adam Thompson, 19, was tragically killed in an auto accident in April 2011.He was a 2010 graduate of North Harford High School and was attending Harford Community College at the time of his death. He is the son of Roy and Pat Thompson. Adam’s mother, a nurse, has worked at University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health for 30 years and is a part-time nursing instructor at Harford Community College. To honor Adam, scholarship opportunities have been established in his name through the Harford Community College Foundation and through The Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation. It is the hope of Adam’s parents that others can realize their dream of attending college.
