The Race4Love has its origins in the Tate/Coursen Memorial Walk/Run that was organized by Marie Tate and held in January 2012. The event honored Lance Cpl. Dana Tate and Cpl. Dyke “A.J.” Coursen, two Beaufort County Sheriff’s deputies who were killed when responding to a domestic violence call in 2002. In 2013, the event moved to the weekend closest to Valentine’s Day and adopted the “Race4Love” name. Marie Tate, Lance Cpl. Dana Tate’s widow is still actively involved in the event six years later. Race participants pass a tribute to Lance Cpl. Dana Tate at the “Tate Turnaround,” sponsored by Marie Tate, just before the home stretch on Islands Causeway.
“We are so grateful to Marie Tate, the Beaufort County Sheriff’s office and all the sponsors and Race4Love participants that are helping us end abuse and change lives in the Lowcountry,” said Kristin Dubrowski, COO of Hopeful Horizons. “Support of this event helps to ensure that Hopeful Horizons’ life-saving services are available free of charge for all those in need.”
