"We wanted to find a way to memorialize Kate and give back and do something positive. It's an amazing event something we can do year after year to remember Kate," her brother Brad Steinle said.

An undocumented immigrant is accused of shooting Steinle on Pier 14 in July 2015.

Steinle's family is hoping the race called Good For Your Soul will become an annual event.
