ATLANTA (AP) - It's been more than a year since the son of Usher's ex-wife Tameka Raymond died in a boating accident on a Georgia lake.

Raymond is working to keep the memory of son Kile Glover alive, honoring him with the first Give Thanks 5K run/walk Saturday morning in Atlanta. She is raising money for the Kile's World Foundation's art initiatives and upcoming camps.

Glover was run over by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier, northeast of Atlanta. The 11-year-old boy died two weeks after being critically injured from the accident.

Raymond says Usher will not attend the event because he's out of the country filming the movie "Hands of Stone." The Grammy-winning singer is playing the role of Sugar Ray Leonard in a film based on boxing great Roberto Duran.
