Walk held in honor of Corpus Christi High School student

September is suicide prevention month and Saturday a walk was held to honor the memory of Cristian Rodriguez who died by suicide.

Dozens gathered at the "Suicide Walk" organized by the 14 year old's mother Christine.

The event was held to raise awareness on the topic and she hopes his story can help prevent for other families to go through another tragedy like hers.

"Cristian was a happy child and I wanted to do something that would honor him but also raise awareness to help others so other families don't have to go through this." said Christine.

The walk was also created to raise funds for student scholarships under Cristian's name and memory.
