Tameka Raymond Holds 5K Run/Walk in Honor of Son Kile

Truly hate I missed this wonderful event created by Tameka Raymond (Usher’s ex-wife) honoring her son Kile with the first Give Thanks 5K run/walk .  Kile was tragically run over by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier and died two weeks after being critically injured from the accident.

The event was held this morning at Chastain Park in Atlanta GA and drew many many supporters.  Take a look at a few photos I snatched from Instagram 🙂
