Friends and family will come together at Wednesday's 36th running of the Bluegrass 10,000 to remember Sarah B. Hart.
An athletic, pregnant mother of three, Hart was strangled to death June 14, attacked after going for an early morning run in Russell County.
Hart's family will be on hand and will be introduced during the Bluegrass 10,000 post-race awards ceremony in downtown Lexington. They will speak briefly about what is being done in Russell County in memory of Sarah.
That includes a 4-mile race and 1.5-mile fun run at Russell County High School on Aug. 11, dubbed Run With All Your Hart (www.runwithallyourhart.com).
A portion of Run With All Your Hart proceeds will be donated to the Sarah Roberts Hart Foundation, which "was established in honor of Sarah's life and dedication to her family, faith, education and her profession as a pharmacist," the race brochure reads. "The foundation will provide scholarships for area students pursuing careers in the fields of pharmacy and/or medicine."
Bluegrass 10,000 participants and spectators can meet the Hart family Wednesday, and can donate to the foundation. To donate directly, make checks payable to the Sarah Roberts Hart Foundation, P.O. Box 1036, Jamestown, KY 42629.
Lexington's Rock 'n' Roll Lexington Half-Marathon, scheduled for March 30, 2013, also will be involved.
Eric Marr, half-marathon race director for the last two years, said that the Rock 'n' Roll (formerly known as Run The Bluegrass) will match donations to the Sarah Roberts Hart Foundation.
