Making a trip to the nation?s capital, David Cook took part in the 2012 Race For Hope in Washington D.C. on Sunday afternoon (May 6).
The former ?American Idol? winner participated in the 5K race that took place near Freedom Plaza in honor of his brother that passed away from a brain tumor in 2009.
“I don’t know if I ever got over it,” the 29-year-old singer said of his brother’s passing. “I don’t know if I ever really will. Going back every year, we kind of treat it like the anniversary. It’s been part of the healing process for my family and I. I think more importantly, to be able to use that as a way to keep Adam’s memory alive and do some good for people still struggling with it — that’s the best way we can honor Adam.”
In other news, Cook is scheduled to perform on the hit show on Thursday (May 10) and debut “The Last Song I’ll Write For You,? from his newest album This Loud Morning.
