The scholarship is given in memory of Joel Zucker who died at the age of 44, two days after completing his third Hardrock Hundred run in July 1998. Joel loved Silverton and running in the mountains and was loved by all who knew him. He was an inspiration to many people who thought they could never run a hundred miles. Joel always managed to finish the race within the last 10 minutes of the 48-hour deadline.

Donations are Appreciated!

Money for this scholarship is raised entirely by donations received from Hardrock Hundred runners, volunteers and friends and family of Joel. Donations can be sent to Citizens State Bank, P.O. Box 6, Silverton, Colorado 81433 c/o Joel Zucker Memorial Fund.

Please note: while we appreciate your donations, the Joel Zucker Scholarship fund is working toward a tax-deductible status in the future. You cannot deduct your donation at this time.
