WORCESTER ,MA (WBZ-AM) -- Dozens of students are on a 50-mile mission to end gun violence as they march from Worcester to Springfield.

They are expected to arrive at Smith and Wesson's Springfield Headquarters on Sunday to demand action from the gun manufacturer.

David Hogg who survived the Parkland Florida school shooting, is marching with the group. He says they want Smith and Wesson to donate $5-Million Dollars for gun violence prevention research.  They're also asking the company to stop making and selling weapons that are currently illegal to own in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

WBZ has reached out to Smith and Wesson. So far, the company has no response.
