Don’t Miss: Steve Latimer Memorial 5K Run/Walk
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
Honoring Steve Latimer
Latimer was two days shy of his 24th birthday when he was fatally shot in an act of senseless violence. The event helps keep Latimer’s memory alive, organizers say, while bringing further awareness of these types of acts. The event is being sponsored by Bank Rhode Island (BankRI).
The mission of the Foundation is to raise money to provide scholarships to Rhode Island children who have lost a parent or caregiver due to an act of violence. The Foundation believes that by providing these children, the un-sung survivors of violence, with scholarships, we are giving them the opportunity to consider education as a formidable option to achieve success, end the cycle of violence and ensure healthy productive living.
