This annual march took place on Memorial Day weekend as a way to promote awareness of the need to combat gun violence as summer nears. It was a unity walk of remembrance of loved ones whose lives were lost to acts of violence. The theme was to choose life and love rather than death and destruction.
The walk began at the Robinson Center and wound through the community, ending at Coquillard Park.
