A new walk is kicking off this weekend to raise awareness about an issue affecting millions of kids.

Buddies not Bullies, a new Duluth nonprofit will host a 5K in Bayfront Festival Park this Saturday.

All funds from the walk will go towards startup costs for the organization aiming to eliminate bullying through workshops and education.

“We want the community to come together, the support has been overwhelming,” Buddies not Bullies co-founder Mindy Murtley said. “We really needed to create some type of environment that everybody can come and support and show you know that we are a community, we’re standing together.”

The event will run from 9 a.m.-noon.

You can still purchase tickets here.
