“I know when I’ll be running, I will be thinking of him,” “I’m thinking about him every day, but he was my running buddy.”
“That’s who I used to do my neighborhood jogs with all the time. He would be the only one who would be like, ‘Let’s go, mom.’ He kept me going.”
Check out all the pics from the run below.
Runners braved near freezing temperatures on Saturday morning for the first five-K race held in Kile’s name. The event helped raise funds for the Kile’s World Foundation, an organization that gives assistance to arts programs for underprivileged children. Kile’s mother, Tameka Foster, started the organization after Kile’s death and says she was “overwhelmed” with the show of support Saturday. Tameka also called Kile an “avid artist” who loved to draw, paint and write songs.
