Wheaton College 5K honors student killed in crash
(MCT) — A Wheaton College student who died last year in a plane crash will be memorialized at a 5K run as part of the school's Homecoming celebration this month. Ramie Harris, who would've been a senior at the school this year, was killed in November alongside her father, Ray, sister, Shey, and a friend, Chris Backus, after the small airplane Ray Harris was piloting crashed near Crystal Lake. She was returning to the college after Thanksgiving break from her home in Marion, Ind.
On Saturday, Oct. 6, hundreds of Wheaton College students and alumni are expected to wear purple gym clothes and wristbands in honor of her favorite color as they tackle the race, which is held every year during the college's Homecoming weekend, said an alumni director for the college, Emily George DeLew.
