People gathered at Bidwell Park in Chico Sunday for the “It’s No Walk in the Park” victims memorial walk and awareness event.  The event was designed to draw attention to the issue of domestic abuse. 

Organizers want to remember women who have suffered emotional pain and some who have lost their lives due to domestic abuse.

It started with a walk, followed by family events at One Mile Recreation Area including businesses, vendors and a kids’ carnival.  It was organized by Prevention Awareness, is a local organization providing community and family intervention and prevention services.

In the afternoon, there was a performance by Mystic Roots.
