KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Dozens gathered in Knoxville Sunday to remember victims of violent crime.

The "Hope for Victims" walk began at Volunteer Landing and continued along Neyland Drive.

Organizers say the walk is a tribute to victims as well as a means to raise awareness about violence across the country.

Joan Berry, whose daughter Johnia was murdered in 2004, said events like these are a great support for victim's families.

"It means so much to family members that have lost loved ones to have support like this. We gain strength from each other," said Berry.

The remembrance walk today marks the start of National Crime Victim's Rights Week.
