UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The 13th annual "Ted Moore Run" was held Saturday on the campus of M.V.C.C. to raise awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving.

Ted Moore was an associate professor in M.V.C.C.'s math department from 1981 until his death in 1996. He was hit by a drunk driver while going out for a morning run.

Race Director Deanna Farro says Ted was an avid runner. Farro said, "we wanted to make sure we remembered Ted in a way that he would love, which is his love for running."

Proceeds from the event will benefit an M.V.C.C. scholarship in Ted Moore's name, as well as help area agencies whose mission is drug and alcohol abuse prevention and treatment.
