HCC hosting first-ever Mole-A-Thon on Oct. 21


HENDERSON, Ky. -- As a kick-off to National Chemistry Week, Henderson Community College Foundation and Henderson Community College will be hosting its first ever Mole-A-Thon at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21.

A mole of an element is equal to its average mass, which is equal to 6.02 x 1023 atoms of that element.

To celebrate, HCC will be hosting a Half Mole (3.01km) and Full Mole (6.02km) run/walk on our scenic campus. Race entry is $23 for non-students and $10 for college, elementary, and secondary students. Registration
