Heather L. Hurd 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Walk

The 7th Annual Heather L. Hurd 5K Run and Trick or Treat Walk presented by Kent Schwab Allstate Agency, takes place at Harford Community College on Sat., October 31, 2015

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.

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.

Over the six years the race has been held, more than $100,000 has been raised for Remembrance Book Scholarships.

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.
