IBF and WBA (Super) Light Middleweight Champion, Jarrett Hurd will act as the Grand Marshall for STRIVE Splash N Dash at the Ellen Linson Splash Pool in College Park, MD on Saturday, June 16th, 2018.

This marks the first time a professional boxer has had the Grand Marshall distinction with Prince George's County Executive and ardent STRIVE 2 TRI supporter, Rushern Baker having done so in the past.

"We are excited to have Jarrett Hurd as the STRIVE Splash N Dash Grand Marshall which is an annual community event to inspire families to get healthy and stay active," said Tarus Nelson, Executive Director of STRIVE 2 TRI, Inc.

Jarrett Hurd recently unified the 154-pound division with a 12-round split-decision victory over Erislandy Lara in an all-action fight on SHOWTIME at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Hurd is a native of Accokeek, MD.
