Thunder to honor Moore High School tragedy victims

The Oklahoma City Thunder announced Thursday it would waive registration fees for high school runners who want to participate in this year's Thunder Run in honor of the Moore High School track team tragedy.

Senior Rachel Freeman and sophomore Yuridia Martinez died last week after a truck struck them and five other students. One of those, senior Kolby Crum, remains in critical condition with severe brain trauma, according to the Facebook page, "Prayers for Kolby."

"We encourage all high school students wanting to honor the memory of Rachel and Yuridia to sign up for the Thunder Run," Thunder vice president of community relations Christine Berney said. “We stand firmly with the cross-country team, all of the students and the entire Moore community as it goes through the process of mourning and healing.”

The Thunder Run on March 7 includes two races, Rumble's Family Fun Run at 9 a.m. and the Thunder 5K following at 9:30 a.m. 

The races meander through downtown Oklahoma City before ending on the floor of Chesapeake Energy Arena.

For more information or to register for the Thunder Run, visit okcthunder.com/thunderrun.
