8th Annual Heather Hurd 5K | Children's Trick-or-Treat Event | Harford Community College | @sinc
Heather Hurd 5K Race at Harford Community College
"Scare Away Distracted Driving!"
On Saturday October, 29 2016, over six hundred participated in the 8th annual Heather Hurd 5k + Children's trick-or-treat walk! Once again, the event honoring their beloved daughter, Heather Hurd, was a huge success raising $35,000 this year ($170,000 total over the past 8 years). Kiddie Academy was one of the Blue ribbon sponsors of the events and I enjoyed the morning photographing the fun!
Below is a clip of information from active.com along with additional links to visit about the annual event.
"On January 3, 2008, former HCC student Heather Hurd was traveling to meet her wedding planner at Disney World in Florida when she was killed by a distracted tractor trailer driver who was text messaging. Tragically, 40,000 of our families and friends are killed every year on our nation's highways. Over 500 people lose their lives each year in Maryland alone. It is our greatest hope that the Heather Hurd 5K Walk/Run will not only honor those lost on our highways, but also help reduce these needless fatalities by increasing public awareness with the creation of Remembrance Book Scholarships at Harford Community College. Please join us in helping save lives by participating in the Annual Heather Hurd 5K Run and Trick or Treat Kids Walk.
“Let's all put our hearts together and make a wish come true.” – The Family and Friends of Heather Hurd
The walk/run was established by the Hurd Family and Harford Community College in 2009 to raise funds for the Harford Community College Remembrance Book Scholarship Fund and to raise awareness of traffic accidents, their consequences and what can be done to prevent them."
