On April 29, over 2,600 middle school students of the Toronto District School Board walked from Lawrence Avenue to Metro Hall as a part of the GuluWalk.

The GuluWalk was created to raise awareness of the troubles in Northern Uganda caused by the Lord’s Resistance Army and redevelopment needs. The walk is a symbolic reminder of the distance children had to travel to the city to avoid being captured or killed.

Since its 2005 inception in Toronto, Ontario, the GuluWalk has grown significantly; it's now an worldwide peace movement with 30,000+ supporters in 75 countries. Stats for Youth Activist Marches Trending: Older & Mild
