Killeen woman to hold walk for Newtown victims


A Central Texas woman is putting on a walk to honor the victim's of the Newtown, Connecticut shooting. Josie Torres is calling it "The 27 Walk."

The event will be held at Lion's Park in Killeen on Friday December 21 at 8:30 a.m., and anyone who wants to participate in the walk can attend. Torres asks that participants wear green and white, which are the colors of Sandy Hook Elementary.

Torres says many Central Texans might not be able to donate their money to the families of victims, but they can donate their time.

"There's a lot of people that can't donate so I figured this is a way we can show how much we care for them by walking," Torres said.

This also a nation wide event, cities from all over are participating.
