CLEVELAND, OH -- Felix DeJesus along with dozens of other advocates hit the streets to promote peace Saturday.

It's a march that happens every year, but this year, held a special significance.

That's because DeJesus' daughter, Gina, along with Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight, were finally found after being kidnapped more than ten years ago.

Ariel Castro admitted to taking the women and brutally beating them during their time at his home on Seymour Avenue. He accepted a plea deal on Friday.

Life without parole plus 1,000 years is the sentence recommendation for Castro.

He will be sentenced this Thursday, August 1.

As for DeJesus, he said he's happy this is a chapter that's finally coming to a close. He said Gina is doing well and his family continues to heal.

DeJesus said his mission to end violence is far from over. He wants the community to know he's behind them 100%.

Gina's aunt reminded the public not to forget about those who are still missing. She said it's important that people stay aware and call the police if they notice anything suspicious.
