The 53-Mile Challenge
In the days leading up to Hoo-Rah Day, 337 Central students, employees, alumni, family and friends participated in the college’s third 53-Mile Challenge from March 1 to April 11. There were a great deal of overachievers in this year’s cohort with many participants completing more than double or triple the number of miles for the challenge. Go Dutch!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this Hoo-Rah Day our best one yet!
