(Toledo News Now) -

Elliot London and Ronnie Kroell are walking almost 1,000 miles from Chicago to New York over the next 37 days to raise awareness for increased bullying prevention efforts across the country. On Your Morning Friday, the two stopped by the studio to promote their walk.

The walk started on Oct. 5 at Millennium Park in Chicago and will end on Nov. 10 in New York City. London and Kroell are co-founders of the Friend Movement, which they say they started in response to the increasing number of suicides being committed as a result of bullying. 

The two men were inspired to establish the movement in the wake of the suicide of Tyler Clementi, a Rutgers University student who jumped to his death off the George Washington Bridge in New York three years ago, after being severely cyber-bullied by his dormitory roommate.
