Local Run to Honor Arbery


Local runners are invited to take part in an event honoring Ahmaud Arbery. 

On her Facebook page, Katie Johnson Adenrele describes herself as an athlete with four black brothers, a black husband, and black students.

She’s asking runners to join her Saturday morning for “We Run with Ahmaud 812.”

Ahmaud Arbery is the 25-year-old African-American man who authorities say was shot to death by a white man and his son in Georgia.

Police didn’t arrest the suspects until video of the shooting was made public.

The “We Run with Ahmaud” event begins at 8:00 Saturday morning at Zion Church on S. Governor St. in Evansville.

Adenrele urges runners should to wear masks and gloves and observe social distancing.
