It's time now to welcome the newest members of our Morning Mug Club -- brought to you by Holland Farms Bakery & Deli. 

Mohawk Valley Community College’s annual Theodore “Ted” Moore Run/Walk is going virtual as the College continues to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

The Theodore “Ted” Moore Run/Walk is presented by the Oneida County STOP-DWI Program and is now in its 24th year. The MVCC Foundation is inviting everyone to participate virtually on Saturday, May 1, by walking or running on a treadmill, taking a walk around the block, or running in the park (all while following CDC guidelines, of course). Participants are also encouraged to take a selfie during their run or walk, then email it to tedmoore@mvcc.edu to be included in a special album on the MVCC Foundation and Alumni Facebook page, facebook.com/MVCCFoundation

“This event is an important part of raising awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving,” said Ted Moore Run/Walk Race Director Deanna Ferro-Aurience. “It demonstrates how such an act can not only devastate a family, but an entire community.” 

Theodore “Ted” Moore was an Associate Professor in MVCC’s Mathematics Department from 1981 until December 1996, when he was tragically struck and killed by a drunk driver while out for a morning run. The College honors his memory each year with the Ted Moore Run/Walk, and the theme “None for the Road” reflects MVCC’s opposition to driving while under the influence of alcohol. Event proceeds benefit a scholarship in Moore’s name, which is awarded annually to deserving MVCC students who exemplify the qualities and values of Ted Moore. 

To register for the Virtual Ted Moore Run/Walk or to donate to the scholarship fund, visit www.mvcc.edu/foundation/ted-moore. For a $25 minimum donation, participants will receive a commemorative Run/Walk T-shirt (while supplies last). 

Please make checks payable to the MVCC Foundation and mail to: MVCC, Office of Institutional Advancement, 1101 Sherman Drive, Utica, NY 13501. For more information, email Deanna Ferro-Aurience at DFerro-Aurience@mvcc.edu.
