Join KC Mothers in Charge for their 1st Annual 5k—Pee-Wee’s Run.
Pee-Wee’s Run was named after KC MIC Founder and Executive Director Rosilyn Temple’s son, Antonio “Pee-Wee” Thompson, who was found murdered in his apartment in 2011. This annual 5k will kick off National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, a week dedicated to promoting victims' rights and honoring crime victims. Since Pee-Wee’s death, Ms. Temple has dedicated her life to helping others. KC Mothers in Charge provides support for families who have lost someone due to homicide, including support at the homicide scene, support groups, individual counseling, weekly check-in phone calls, food, toiletries, and lots of love and peer-to-peer support. Ms. Temple is at nearly every homicide scene in the Kansas City metro area to comfort families at the scene. “I look for the mother first,” Ms. Temple says of visiting homicide scenes, “Because I know she needs a hug from me.” Join KC Mothers in Charge in their 5k in honor of Pee-Wee and lives lost to violence in Kansas City. It’s time to come together!
