The Country Music 1/2 and Full Marathon took place in Nashville on April 30, 2011. As a way to remember Kyser and celebrate his life, over 30 Vanderbilt and SAE alumni came back to Nashville to take part the race or cheer on friends in Kyser’s honor. Undergraduate and alumni members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and members of Kyser’s family and other friends participated. This brought great time of fellowship with another and continued awareness of the loss of our good friend. As a part of the race, individuals raised more than $20,000 to further endow the scholarship in Kyser’s name at Vanderbilt.
