Annual Chris Hoban run

The 20th Annual Police Officer Christopher Hoban Five-Mile Memorial Run will be held September 21, 10:30 a.m. at Xaverian High School, 7100 Shore Road in Bay Ridge.

The event involves a five-mile run in memory of Police Officer Chris Hoban; a One-Mile Funny Hat Health Walk in memory of Tina Hoban; and pee wee runs for the kids. A post race barbecue includes music, food and beverages, children’s activities, awards and raffles.

Police Officer Hoban was killed October 18, 1988 during an undercover buy and bust operation in Upper Manhattan.

All proceeds benefit the Hoban Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition assistance for sons of New York City police officers attending Xaverian.
