The Hoban Run, a September tradition in Bay Ridge, keeps alive the memory of P.O. Christopher Hoban '80, who gave his life in the line of duty in 1988 at the age of 26. The Police Alumni of Xaverian established a memorial scholarship fund to honor their fellow officer.
The Hoban Run is enthusiastically supported by the Xaverian Police Alumni, the NYPD, and the entire community. The Run not only keeps alive the memory of Chris' personal sacrifice, but it also serves as the primary funding of the Hoban Scholarship, which provides tuition assistance to sons and daughters of New York City Police Officers attending Xaverian.
