    A tree was planted near the spot where she was killed and neighbors have left running shoes, stuffed animals and flowers as a makeshift memorials for Hilts.

    The run will be on Sunday, Nov. 12  at 7 a.m. and will start at an elementary school on Lakewood Drive. Runners will complete a 2 mile loop that Hilts would run almost everyday.
