SANFORD, Fla. – College students from all around the state are marching for 40 miles to protest the death of Trayvon Martin on Friday.

Over the next three days, the students will walk from Daytona Beach, down U.S. Highway 17-92 to Sanford.

The group, which calls itself Dream Defenders, will be staying in local churches overnight until they arrive in Sanford on Sunday. They say they are taking a stand against racial profiling.
