March for Humanity

A walkathon organized by the Armenian Youth Federation took place on Sunday April 22–2001. Close to 200 Armenia’s walked from Alex Pilibos Armenian School to the Turkish Consulate–in memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. The five mile walk took approximately two-and-a-half hours–after which a short candle-lighting vigil took place. Speakers included Razmig Haroun of the AYF Glendale "Roupen" Chapter–Greg Krikorian of the Glendale Board of Education–Armond Agakhani – field representative for Assemblymember Dario Frommer–and AYF CE Chairman Melkon Melkonian.
