For the 14th straight year, hundreds of runners and walkers gathered in Narragansett to honor the memory of 13-year-old Katie DeCubellis and her best friend's mother, Marsha Bowman.
They were killed by drunken driver in October 1999.
"We think of Katie every day," said her father, John DeCubellis Jr., who is the executive director of the Katie DeCubellis Memorial Foundation. "That motivates us to do what we do."
The foundation puts on the 5K to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and distracted driving. Katie's best friend and Bowman's daughter, Becky White, was the only person who survived the crash.
"I run for Katie and my mother," White said. "I run for all the victims of drunk driving."
The Katie DeCubellis Memorial Foundation has given out over $300,000 in scholarships and prizes to students who are living responsibly.
