Support for Family of Jogger Killed in Va. Pours in Online

Support is pouring in online for the daughters of an Ashburn, Va., mom killed while jogging.

A GoFundMe page set up less than a week ago has already raised more than $95,000 for the daughters of 31-year-old Jaime Rowley.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was among the more than 7,000 people who shared the site on social media. The site raised more than $38,000 the first day it was up.

Also circulating online are photos of the scores of tennis shoes tied to a pole near the intersection where Rowley died.

Police say Rowley was jogging along Waxpool Road near Claiborne Parkway in Broadlands, Va., on March 13 when a 61-year-old driver traveling southbound struck her.

The driver stayed on scene and attempted CPR on Rowley, who was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

In addition to the donation site for the family, a Facebook page called "Run for Jaime" encourages people to run in honor of the Virginia mom.
