Kile’s World 5K run held in memory of Usher’s stepson on Sunday

As families head to rivers and lakes during the summer, Tameka Foster-Raymond can’t help but think of her son, Kile.

“I’m a little nervous about water,” said Foster-Raymond.

Her son was being pulled on an inner tube in July 2012 when he was run over by Jeffrey Simon Hubbard, according to investigators. The youth, the son of Bounce TV executive Ryan Glover, died from head injuries about two weeks later.

For the last few years, Foster-Raymond, who is divorced from Usher, has held a Kile’s World 5K run to raise awareness about boat safety for youth and to push for stiffer penalties for those boating while under the influence.

“I hope parents keep a very, very close eye on their children,” said Foster-Raymond, who has four surviving children. “I try not to live in fear. I try to let them lead fun and productive lives.” Kile Glover was the son of Bounce TV executive Ryan Glover.

Registration is $35 per individual and $395 for a team of 20 and can take place on the day of the run. On site registration begins at 8 a.m. and the race starts at 9 a.m. Sunday. Runners will meet in front of the Galloway School, 215 W Wieuca Rd. N.W.

Fitness expert Tramell Smith is also part of the event.

Proceeds will benefit Kile's World, a nonprofit that supports and encourages children with passion for creativity. Kile Glover liked to write music and the arts. A summer camp for children will be held at the Galloway School from June 20 through July 8. The cost is $195 a week.
