The SADD chapters at King Philip Regional High School and Franklin High School are committed to ensuring Miles for Maura participants and the greater community stay safe. Therefore we have made the collective decision to host another virtual 5K Run/Walk in memory of Maura D. Howard.
On July 31, 1994, on her way home from a weekend trip with friends, Maura was killed by a drunk driver who was speeding recklessly down the highway. Because of this destructive decision, life for Team Howard and Maura's extended loving family and friends has never been the same.
Keeping Maura's memory alive is our top priority. Spreading awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving through scholarships in her honor is a critical piece of the mission.
We are launching this year's Miles for Maura campaign on Maura's birthday, Saturday, April 9. Throughout the month you will be able to participate in the virtual event. We are asking for a minimum donation of $10. Once you register, you can complete as many 5K (3.1 miles) runs/walks as you would like between Saturday, April 9, and Saturday, April 30.
Let’s stay connected! Please follow and tag @milesformaura on Instagram so we can collect and share your unique experiences.
We will miss walking together! Because of the success we had during our virtual 2021 campaign, we plan to continue the hybrid approach. For locals, we look forward to resuming a larger in-person event in 2023.
We are incredibly grateful for all of the community support throughout the years. Thank you for your continued commitment and participation. Stay well, spread kindness, and take care of yourselves.
