Friend Movement co-founders call 103.5 KISS-FM

Chicago, IL - Ronnie Kroell and Elliot London, who embarked Saturday morning on a walk from Chicago to New York City to raise awareness for increased bullying prevention efforts across the country, provided an update Tuesday morning during a phone call to 103.5 KISS FM.

The duo, both from Chicago, called Brother Fred and Angi Taylor from Laporte Indiana, which is 61 miles into their 921-mile walk over a period of 37 days.

"Silence and inaction are just not an option anymore," Kroell told before the walk. 

Kroell, a 30-year-old fashion model and actor, best known for appearing on season one of Bravo's "Make Me A Supermodel," and London, an Australian-born filmmaker who last year received acclaim for his short, pro-marriage equality film titled "The Wedding Dance," are co-founders of the Friend Movement.

The Friend Movement Walk is inspired by the tragic and nationally recognized suicide of 18-year-old Rutger's student Tyler Clementi, who jumped off the George Washington Bridge in New York City as a result of the anti-gay bullying he faced.

Accompanied by a team of professional artists and producers, Kroell and London will follow the sideroads of America through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey before ending in New York City.
