Following the killing of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery, who was chased down and fatally shot by two white men while jogging in February, a run is being organized Friday where participants can honor Arbery’s life.

According to CNN, Jason Vaughn, Arbery's high school football coach, is asking supporters to honor the deceased by going for a run of 2.23 miles, which corresponds with his birthdate. Vaughn asks that runners document their jog and post it to social media channels under the hashtag #IRunWithMaud.

"With COVID-19 of course, we can't have a demonstration where we all come together," he said. "Any runner can identify with Maud, a guy who may have had a bad day, but he can go out there and hit the pavement and go jog."

Vaughn said the last time he saw Arbery was for a brief moment when they crossed paths on a run. Vaughn said he wanted to talk with him, but Arbery was a serious athlete and he couldn't keep up with his pace.

"I'm going to keep going just like he was going last time I saw him," Vaughn said.

As Blavity previously reported, the 25-year-old was jogging in a neighborhood outside Brunswick, Georgia, on February 23 when he was shot down by a former police officer and his son — who both were armed — according to authorities. The former officer told police that he thought Arbery looked like a suspect that had been involved in a series of local crimes.

Celebrities like NBA star LeBron James have helped bring more awareness to Arbery's death. James tweeted a message Wednesday emphasizing how Black people are "hunted" every time we step outside of our homes and sent condolences to the family.  

"We're literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our homes!" James tweeted. "I'm sorry Ahmaud(Rest In Paradise) and my prayers and blessings sent to the … heavens above to your family!!"

Atlantic Judicial Circuit District Attorney Tom Durden made a formal motion this week to have the Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigate Arbery's death, CNN reported.

"Our goal in every investigation is to seek the truth, and that's exactly what we intend on doing in this matter," GBI Director Vic Reynolds said. "This investigation must be done correctly, and therefore I must ask for a little of your patience. I'm confident that we will do justice in this matter."

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said she supports an immediate investigation in an MSNBC interview Wednesday.

"It looks like vigilante behavior that should be charged and criminalized. And it looks like the Arbery family has been dealt a very sore hand of injustice," Abrams said.

Durden wrote in a statement Wednesday that he intends to present the case at the next grand jury hearing, pending coronavirus precautions.
