Kile’s World Foundation will host its first Give Thanks 5K Run/Walk with veteran fitness guru Donna Richardson Joyner and R&B singer Syleena Johnson.
“The arts were extremely important to my son, Kile. As we kickoff the holiday season, I’m inviting everyone to give back while burning off those extra Thanksgiving calories,” says Tameka Raymond, the founder and chairman of Kile’s World Foundation.“In the process, you will be making a camper’s dream come true.”
Proceeds from the Give Thanks 5k Run/Walk will go to support Kile’s World’s art initiatives and its upcoming camps. Focusing on performance, fine and applied arts, Kile’s World Foundation offers comprehensive art education to children. Students age 10-17 will be given the opportunity to explore various elements of the arts, including acting, singing, dance, painting, illustration, music production and digital media instruction.
Raymond encourages the community, particularly young people, to get active and give thanks with Kile’s World’s Give Thanks 5K Run/Walk. “It’s been proven that physical activity is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your health. So we are excited about families joining us as we get activity and stay healthy.”
“It’s really great that even in Kile’s death, lives will be saved,” offers Richardson Joyner.
The event takes place on Saturday, Nov., 30, 2013 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Chastain Park located at 4469 Stella Drive Northwest in Atlanta, Ga. 30327
The foundation wishes to cultivate an environment where developing artists can explore their artistic interests with the guidance and support of mentors. For more information, visit http://kilesworldfoundation.org.
