We are completing 3.2 miles in honor of the #32 Ben Abercrombie wore as a member of the Harvard football team.
Ben suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury playing in his first collegiate game. He is continuing his Harvard education while remaining a member of the Harvard football program, but he and his family continue to face an uphill battle. The Harvard Varsity Club has committed to supporting Ben, and his family, throughout their journey. The Abercrombie Fund provides support to the Abercrombie family and any future Harvard undergraduate student-athlete who incurs a severe or catastrophic injury while competing for the Crimson while enrolled in Harvard College.
How does 3.2 miles compare to a more traditional 5K? It's basically the same!
3.2 miles = 5.1499 kilometers

Ben was a two-sport star in football and baseball at Hoover High School in Hoover, Alabama, helping the Buccaneers win Alabama 7A State Championships in both sports (football in 2014 & 2016, baseball in 2017). He was selected All-State first team at the end of his senior year. Upon arriving at Harvard, Ben quickly became one of the most respected and talented players on the football field and was the only first-year on the defensive side of the ball to make the travel squad for the season opener at the University of Rhode Island. In his collegiate debut, Ben made a tackle that resulted in a catastrophic spinal cord injury and caused him to lose mobility and feeling throughout his body.
Ben is continuing his Harvard education while remaining a member of the Harvard football program.
