Organizer Kyle Compton held the event as a way to support OneOrlando, the official charity for the Pulse shooting victims.
Four dollars and a bunch of loose change filled up the Ziploc bag a 9-year-old local resident put in the donation bucket for OneOrlando. Though he didn't say how long he had been saving up, Daniel Love Jr.'s last name speaks volumes to his intentions.
"We wanted to come support the victims," he said, looking up at his mom.
"Yep," she smiled. "That's why we're here."
Over 250 people came out to Fortunato Park July 24 to walk the Granada Bridge for the Ormond Walk for OneOrlando. Participants wore rainbow wristbands, bandanas and carried colorful balloons to raise money and show support for the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting that happened over a month ago.
Organizer Kyle Compton said he was overwhelmed and honoredwith the amount of support he found from people and businesses in the community.
"I'm a member of the gay community, and it really hit really hard" he said. "I don't go to night clubs anymore, but if I was their age would have been there. This kind of thing is usually done in bigger cities, but this is where I've chosen to make my home. So I wanted to bring everyone together."
Mayor Ed Kelley was among the many attendees.
"Thank you for being here and showing love for each other," he said. "Hug someone you don't know, and spread the love from Ormond beach."
