About This Event
This exciting event is put on by the Steven K Latimer Memorial Foundation and will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Roger Williams Park – Temple to Music, Providence, RI.
The SKL Memorial Foundation is a registered non-profit organization, which was established in honor of my son, Steven Latimer, who was shot and killed on October 2, 2011 in a senseless, random act of violence, just two days before his 24th birthday.
The Foundation provides scholarships to youth in the state of Rhode Island who have lost a parent/guardian or loved one due to an act of violence. The SKL Memorial 5K ~ Families Against Violence Run/Walk is the Foundations main fundraiser and has been put on for the last 5 years as the catalyst to bring awareness to the violence in our cities. The event also brings our communities together to honor those lost to violence while encouraging families to participate in an event that promotes peace, healing, good health practices and the opportunity to be amongst people who want the violence to stop. Since 2013 the Foundation has awarded $6,500 in scholarships to students in Rhode Island.
Please join us in making a positive difference in our communities as well as in the lives of our youth. I believe that by providing these un-sung survivors of violence with scholarships we are providing them the opportunity to consider education as a formidable option to achieve success, end the cycle of violence and ensure healthy productive living.
