This exciting event will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017 at Roger Williams Park – Temple to Music, Providence, RI. Your sponsorship will help assure the success of the 6th annual Steven K Latimer Memorial 5K ~ Families Against Violence Run/Walk

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 impact that violence has on our youth and communities. 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
