Scott Grugan Memorial Run
On October 17, 2009, the community of Huntingdon will host the 7th Annual Healthy Harvest Festival to celebrate the harvest season and the many health and wellness resources in Huntingdon County with exhibits, musical entertainment, art, crafts, food, children’s activities and more.
For the third year, the Scott Grugan Memorial 5K Trail Run and 1 Mile Walk/Run will kick off this event in honor of Dr. Scott Grugan, former chief radiologist at J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital, who died tragically in 2005. Dr. Grugan was not only a well-respected physician and member of the Huntingdon community, but also an avid runner and fitness enthusiast. In particular, Scott enjoyed running the trails of the Flag Pole Hill Trail System, where the race will be held. The race course lies high above the town of Huntingdon. Along the route, runners and walkers will be able to enjoy the beautiful views of Huntingdon’s fall foliage. The 5K course will also include Juniata College’s renowned “Peace Chapel,” designed by Vietnam War Memorial architect Maya Lin.
All proceeds raised will benefit the Scott Grugan Memorial Fund and the Huntingdon Health and Wellness Association to further promote healthy living in our community.
