Sunday, November 7, 2010, a Georgia teenager named Bobby Tillman was randomly chosen and beaten to death by four teens outside of a get-together. Bobby was brutally murdered, but inadvertently started a nationwide movement. At the age of 18, Bobby had such a bright future ahead of him, with a focus on giving back, sharing love, working hard, and making a difference in other's lives. Today his Mother, Monique Rivarde, carries a message of love, courage, and acceptance through volunteer work, rallies, and speaking engagements across the state of Georgia and beyond.
The objective of the Bobby Tillman 5k Walk/Run of Love Race is to assist our High School Graduates. Our youth may face obstacles in their paths to achieve post-high school education/training and we want to help them succeed!
