Someone driving down MLK struck and critically injured seven-year-old Zeytuna Edo September 30 while Zeytuna was on her way to a tutoring session at the Boys & Girls Club. The person behind the wheel did not stop. In fact, witnesses said the driver did not even slow down.

Nearly a month later, Zeytuna is still hospitalized, and her family and community is holding a vigil and walk Saturday to send her their best wishes and to talk about how to prevent this from happening again. Mayor Ed Murray is schedule to speak.

You can join by meeting at the Columbia City light rail station at MLK and S Alaska at 2 p.m. The walk will head to the Genesee Street, where she was struck, then to the Boys & Girls Club for a “solutions meeting.”

So far, more than $30,000 have been raised online to help support her family through this very tough time. You can still contribute.

Details on the walk from Rainier Valley Greenways:

7 year old Zeytuna was walking with her family at Genessee and MLK JR Way S when she became the victim of a hit and run car collision, leaving her hospitalized with very serious injuries.

The family and community of Zeytuna is hosting a walking vigil; a gathering to bring attention to this incident and to talk about making our streets safer for all. Friends come out and join the community as we walk together in support of one of our own.

Speakers will include:
-Mayor Ed Murray
