Lots of people chose to run or walk 2.23 miles, which corresponds with Feb. 23, the date Arbery was killed.
Many tried to find additional ways to honor Arbery, with one runner getting up at 2:23 a.m. to begin her jog, and one pausing to say a prayer at mile 2.23 before he continued running.
In addition to individuals or families honoring Arbery on their own, more formal walks and jogs have also been organized. On Friday, hundreds gathered for a rally outside the Glynn County courthouse Friday, and an #IRunWithMaud Dedication Walk hosted by two members of the Cobb County School Board is taking place at the Taylor-Brawner Park in Smyrna, with social distancing precautions a priority amid the coronavirus (participants are asked to wear a mask, keep six feet apart and stay home if experiencing illness).
The Action PAC has also organized a #RunWithMaud initiative.
