Report on 2013 Joel Zucker Scholarship awards
- Hi Hardrockers,
Many of you knew Joel Zucker and/or have contributed money to his
scholarship. Hardrock gives out these scholarships every year to students who
live in the communities in which we run.
This weekend the scholarship committee met and interviewed potential
recipients of the scholarship As always, I appreciate the work that Andi
Kron, chair of the scholarship committee did to coordinate these scholarships
and appreciate everybody's interest and financial support for this
We were able to give away $8000 to students to continue their education.
Since 1999 we have awarded $45,000 in scholarships to 32 individuals, some of
them receiving money for four years. This year's amount was the highest ever
given in a single year.
Lisa Glick, Joel Zucker's sister, has indicated that she may come to
Silverton to crew or pace someone at Hardrock this year. Lisa has become an
ultra runner herself and is the race director of the Harvest Half Marathon in
Red Hook, NY. She directs this run in honor of Joel's birthday in October.
You rock Hardrockers!!
