Join us for the 8th Annual Heather L. Hurd 5K Run and Trick or Treat Walk Presented by Kent Schwab Allstate Agency

Saturday, October 29, 2016

Spend your Halloween weekend at this fun event for the whole family!

The 8th Annual Heather L. Hurd Run & Trick or Treat Walk will be held at the Susquehanna Center the Harford Community College campus.

The event features exhibitors, interactive activities and a large children's area with bounce houses, face painting and costume characters.

The race honors the memory of Heather L. Hurd, a history major at Harford Community College from 1999 to 2003, who was killed in 2008 by a distracted driver who was texting.

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.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Harford Community College Remembrance Book Scholarship Fund.

Heather Hurd

In 2008, 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. 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.
