Heather's Story

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/1 Mile Fun Walk.
