It's called a Run To Remember and on Saturday, dozens of people are remembering Sha Wetherington.

"She was outgoing, loveable; there was no one who ever met her that she didn't make an impact in their life," said Sha's sister Britney Mobley.

"if you were around her you were going to laugh, there's no doubt about it," added Don Pitts, a friend of Sha's.

Sha died in June 2011 in Brooks County. She was driving back from a job interview when she lost control of her car. Just days before her death, she talked to her mother about her plans for the future.

"She wanted to help her fellow man and she settled on going to Belize," said Mobley. "After her accident, my family decided we needed to honor that."

And that's exactly what they're doing. Proceeds from the race are going towards a mission trip to Belize to work with local orphanages there.

"It's something Sha would do herself for somebody else, so that's what makes it so neat," said Sha's former soccer coach, Ken Veilands.

Friends say events like Saturday's race help get them through the hard times.

"It's good to keep her memory going," said Pitts. "It makes me feel better just being out there to do things that some people can't do anymore."
