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

On November 8, 2014, Harford Community College is honored to host the sixth annual Heather L. Hurd 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Walk in memory of Heather L. Hurd.

Heather was a former student who was killed in a traffic accident in 2008 by a distracted driver. HCC and the Hurd family would like to remember the hundreds of victims who are tragically killed on Maryland roads each year and acknowledge the work of our fire, police, and ambulance personnel. The proceeds from this event will benefit the Harford Community College Remembrance Book Scholarship Fund for HCC students and help raise awareness of traffic accidents, their consequences and costs, and the measures that can be taken to prevent them.

You may register online to participate or donate to Remembrance Book Scholarships. 

For more information on the event contact Julie Rozankowski on 443-412-2449 or jrozankowski@harford.edu.

Registration opens at 8:00 AM, the race start time is 9:00 AM.

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.
