Nathan Hergenhahn was a remarkable young man who was admired and loved by many he was well on his way to a great deal of success athletically (through football and basketball) and academically. In the summer between his sophomore and junior year he died in a car accident 6 days after his 16th birthday. In an effort to stay physically and mentally fit, Nathan was also a runner and frequently ran with me (his dad). We had some of our best times together when we would participate in races together and we planned to run a Boston Marathon together. In honor of Nate and in an attempt to keep his memory alive we hold an annual 5 K at his beloved Alvirne High School. This year we will hold the 5th Annual NATES RACE in his memory.
Since Nathans accident I have been in touch with dozens of Nathans friends and have discussed the race with all of them and they all seem to believe this would be a very good way to honor Nathan. We decided to call the event “Nates Race” since Nathan was known by most as “Nate” and this race will be all about Nate. The Scholarship fund* will be the primary reason however, we intend to keep Nates memory alive in everyones mind by surrounding ourselves with people that love and admired him and we will always have special events that pay special tribute to Nathan in a way that would be meaningful to him.
The event will be focused around the run but will be family oriented and will be a Hudson supported event that people will appreciate and enjoy.
The Nates Race Foundation gives 100% of the money raised by our annual run to Alvirne High School to use for scholarships. It is our position that we want little to do with who gets the scholarships since Alvirne has a fair process to determine worthy candidates. After careful consideration we have requested the priority be given to athletes involved in any sport. While we feel there are many “non-athletes” that are very deserving we have decided that Nathan would have preferred the money go to students that participate in some sport.
Please consider sponsoring this worthy cause. Learn more.
Please join us as a volunteer to line our course and cheer on our participants! Volunteers will be needed starting at 7:30am on the day of the event and are stationed at various places along the course until about 9:45am, when the last participants come through. Additional volunteers will be needed for the post-race activities until 12 pm.
