About the Event
Join us for the 17th Annual NVRC/Herbie's Home "Town Loop" 4 Mile Run/Walk on August 5, 2023, at Bellefonte Area High School, Rogers Stadium Track in Bellefonte, PA. This event was created in memory of Jeremy Herbstritt, a 1998 Bellefonte Area High School graduate who lost his life in the Virginia Tech shooting in 2007. The event aims to honor his memory and give back to the community that supported his family during their time of grief.
This year's event will benefit the VTV Family Outreach Foundation's VTVCare program, which provides financial assistance to mass shooting survivors nationwide to help cover long-term trauma-related medical and mental health care expenses that insurance and other governmental programs do not cover.
The 4-mile course is wheel measured and begins and ends at the Bellefonte Area HS track. The course traverses the perimeter of the town of Bellefonte. The entry fee is $25 per individual event if postmarked by August 01, 2023, and $30 per thereafter and on race day. T-shirts will be guaranteed to the first 100 entrants.
On Friday evening, August 4, 2023, a pre-race dinner and roundtable discussion on mass violence and the unmet long-term trauma-related medical and mental healthcare needs of mass shooting survivors will take place. The VTV Family Outreach Foundation will present on their focus program, VTVCare. We invite community members, educators, politicians, and healthcare workers to join us in this important discussion intended to bring awareness to the long-term trauma-related needs of mass shooting survivors and changes we can implement that might halt the rising epidemic of mass violence in our society.
Race day registration and bib pick-up will take place on Saturday, August 05, 2023, beginning at 7 am at Rogers Stadium (Bellefonte Area track). Free parking is available at Bellefonte Area High School. Don't miss this opportunity to honor Jeremy's memory and support a great cause. Register today!
