LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Putting a stop to violence.

That was the goal of rally held Saturday afternoon at Chickasaw Park.

Dozens of children, adults, teachers and preachers turned out.

Organizers call it a movement to put a stop to violence in the community.

Especially that against and involving children.

"That should be our number one goal for everyone's safety. All youth, all adults, everyone in the city. We need to stop this violence and this is an outlet that we think can keep the kids from participating in the violence," said 10th Street Cardinals coach David Anderson.

There was also a balloon release held in honor of a Yellow Cab driver, shot last month.

Family members say Abdirahman Mohamed is paralyzed after being shot in the Parkland neighborhood.

No arrests have been made in that case.
