One Charlottesville neighborhood met to fight community violence by uniting together.
It's a walk that's held each year. Friday night kids and parents gathered at Buford Middle School to walk for hope and unity for their neighborhood.
Police officers say events like this bring family togetherness and will help keep kids on the straight and narrow.
"Since we started our annual walk three years ago, violent crime has been reduced dramatically and a lot more people in the neighborhood are speaking up they don't want this in their neighborhood." said Officer Garlin Mills with Charlottesville Police Department.
Friday's walk brought out about 50 people.
