2.23 miles. That's the number of miles supporters will run Friday to mark the birth of Ahmaud Arbery.

The two numbers symbolize the day Arbery was shot and killed in Georgia.

The virtual run event will allow runners to pick a time to run indoors amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

To show your support, event organizers are asking social media users to use the hashtag #runwithmaud.
