"Derek Davis was a husband, a father of four, a devoted man of faith, an incredible runner and a wonderful person with a generous heart possessed by few in this world. Tragically, Derek left this world on April 27, 2015 from injuries sustained after being hit by a car while on an early morning run with his wife, Amanda. However, his story doesn’t end there. On April 30, 2015, Derek inspired hundreds of people (most of whom did not know him) to complete a tribute run to the site of the accident. It was there the runners dropped flowers, shoes, shirts, pictures, and signs to honor Derek’s spirit. This race was born from the energy and atmosphere of that evening. Derek is undoubtedly proud that his legacy will help others achieve their life goals."
