Foster's 13.1-mile trek through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot theme parks paid homage to the teen daughter who had registered to participate before she died Jan. 10, the mother said on Facebook.

Chastity Foster believes she lost the priceless necklace containing Shaylin's ashes between the Magic Kingdom parking entrance toll area and where the princes stood.
