EDISON, GA (WALB) -

There will be a memorial run in honor of a South Georgia teen who lost his life a year ago.

15-year-old Nathan Toal lost his life after the jeep he was riding on rolled over on Dapady Ranch Plantation in Edison.

The run will start Saturday morning staring at eight at Dapady Ranch.

His parents say Toal was an outgoing teen who loved God and his family dearly

They gave him the nickname Tigger, based off of the Winnie The Pooh Character.

They want to preserve his memory through this run.

"When he died, Carla and I looked at each other and we just felt that we weren't going to let our son die in vain. There was going to be something that came out of this that would be a kingdom deal," said Rob Toal.

There will be a $25 entry fee for the run. All proceeds benefit Living Waters, A North Carolina based Christian organization where Toal attended their summer camps.

It's not too late to sign up for the run. Nearly 300 people have already signed up.
