#RUN4HACC Collegewide Student Success Fund for Excellence

Our College leadership, faculty and staff are passionate about helping HACC students reach their educational goals. A group of six HACC colleagues ran the extra (202) miles to show their support for HACC students AND raise money for the Collegewide Student Success Fund for Excellence by completing the Ragnar Relay from Lancaster to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania from June 15-16, 2018. The HACC Yeah! team experienced first-hand the challenge of completing a 202-mile road race, running through the day and night for HACC students. We are #HACCproud.

Through this crowdfunding campaign, the HACC Yeah! team raised $3,416 to support student success at all of HACC’s campuses and through virtual learning.

Louise Hyder-Darlington’s English Channel Swim HACC Student Emergency Assistance Fund

On Aug. 1, 2017, Louise, a cataloging specialist at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, and her team, Channeling Greatness, completed a six-person English Channel relay swim in 14 hours and 20 minutes! Louise and her team experienced first-hand the challenge of completing the “Mount Everest” of open water swims. In fact, fewer people have swum across the English Channel than have climbed Mount Everest!

Like Louise’s epic swim, college is a challenge that requires physical and mental endurance, stamina and strength along with institutional and social support. Fortunately, like Louise, HACC students are always surrounded by “safety boats,” and our donors help to keep these safety boats afloat. 

Louise raised $2,113 through this crowdfunding campaign to support HACC’s student emergency assistance funds.

In August 2018, Louise will swim the English Channel solo. Stay tuned for more about that adventure!

Dr. Ski – Tour de Dr. Ski HACC Student Emergency Assistance Fund

If you follow Dr. Ski on Facebook and Twitter (@HACCSki), you will see that he is passionate about helping HACC students reach their educational goals. In addition, he is quite passionate about the sport of cycling.

How do these two passions relate?

Each year, Dr. Ski takes one week to ride by himself and reflect upon the successes from the previous academic year and plan for the next academic year. From May 26 to June 2, 2017, Dr. Ski cycled more than 600 miles from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Nashville, Tennessee, in an effort to raise funds in support of HACC students through the College’s student emergency assistance funds.

Through this crowdfunding campaign, Dr. Ski raised $4,450 to empower HACC students who face financial emergencies to achieve their educational goals by helping to cover a portion of an unexpected expense related to a crisis.
