Kiles World – Give Thanks 5k

ATL // Tameka Raymond Hosts “Give Thanks 5k Run/Walk” in Son’s Memory | Nov. 30

Kiles World - Give Thanks 5k

Tameka Raymond, who launched Kile’s World Foundation in honor of her late son Kile Glover this Spring, is hosting the first annual Give Thanks 5k Run/Walk in Atlanta.

Taking place at Chastain Park this Saturday, 100% of proceeds from the event will go toward the arts-focused organization’s workshops for acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production, and digital media for children aged 10-17 years old.

The memory of 11-year-old Kyle — who died after a jet ski accident last summer — lives on through Kile’s World, which was inspired by his passions for acting, producing/performing music, and creating abstract art and photography.

“The arts were extremely important to my son, Kile, so as we kickoff the holiday season, I’m inviting everyone to give back while burning off those extra Thanksgiving calories,” Tameka said. “In the process, you will be making a camper’s dream come true.”

See event details below and keep up with Kile’s World at kilesworldfoundation.org, @KilesWorld, and Kiles World Foundation on Facebook. The hashtag for the event is #MilesforKile.
