As a professional runner, Cameron Bean knew the streets of Chattanooga well. During one of his runs he was struck and killed by a vehicle passing by.

Now the final race he ran has been named in his honor and 600 of his fellow members run for him.

"It is overwhelming," says Cameron's mom, Lisa.

The number of participants is steady from last year, but more than Lisa had ever expected.

Cameron is remembered by his family and those that knew him as a caring man.

His mother says "people that met him, he made sure that he remembered you, and I think by that they remembered him."

The course heads south on Moccasin Bend Road and heads toward the hospital, the same route that Cameron was running when he was hit.
