On Thursday evening, there will be a tribute to a College at Brockport freshman who was brutally murdered in her dorm room.

The Purple 4K Run will be dedicated to Alexandra Kogut. It starts at 7 p.m. and 300 runners have already signed up.

Money raised at the event will go towards planting a tree on campus that blooms with purple flowers. Purple is the color of domestic violence awareness.

Police say Kogut's boyfriend, Clay Whittemore, beat her to death. In his statement to police, Whittemore said he “snapped.”
