BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The Wendale Davis Foundation is holding the 14th annual Walk for Peace and Family Health Resource Fair event on Sept. 25.

The walk will begin at 10 a.m. outside the Wendale Davis Foundation headquarters at 730 Chester Ave. and will end at the same place. Following the walk, there will be a resource fair where the foundation will provide free lunch, resources and the community can come together.

On April 23, 2006, founder Wesley Davis Jr.’s son, 16-year-old Wendale Davis, fell victim to gang violence. No arrests have been made in his case. Every year the foundation holds the event in Davis’s honor and to support those who have also lost their loved ones to gang violence or senseless crimes.
