Dozens gathered this morning to show their support for victims of crime.
The "Walk Off Crime 5K" kicked off Saturday morning on the steps of the Metro Courthouse.
Mayor Dean was there, along with Former First Lady of Tennessee Andrea Conte.
Conte, a victim of kidnapping in 1998, lead the walk.
Organizers say they want to educate the community on crime-prevention and to share everything they've learned from victims.
"Victims have knowledge and experience. It's important to share that to help others prevent crime or prevent themselves from becoming a victim of crime," said Conte.
The walk took participants past several buildings that have been important to victims and their recovery, including the District Attorney's office, the federal courthouse and Legislative Plaza.
