Bay Ridge

A run for the money

Participants of this year’s Hoban Run burned a whole lotta rubber, off their sneakers of course, during a run to remember on Sept. 21. The annual event had athletes taking to the streets of Bay Ridge to honor beloved native and Xaverian High School alum Police Officer Chris Hoban, who died in the line of duty on Oct. 18, 1988. The run was established in his honor, and funds the Chris Hoban Scholarship.

This year’s event raised more than $30,000, said organizers.

“This could not have been possible without the hard work, dedication, commitment, and leadership of the committee,” said Rob Oliva (Class of 2000).

The run began with the presentation of the Police Officer Christopher Hoban Service to New York Award to Police Chief of Staff Kevin Ward (Class of 1981). After all the speechifying, nearly 500 runners took off on the five-mile course.

Angel Confessor slammed home first place for men in 38:38:08, while Sabrina Porter took the women’s top prize in 34:35.28.

Participants enjoyed a post-run barbecue, with musical entertainment by Head Over Heals and Underground Sounds Inc.

Standing O is dusting off the trainers and can’t wait for next year’s run.
