The thousand mile march started on June 2. Willis said his goal was to raise awareness for social change, racial equality and justice for those who lost loved ones to police violence. 

"We're walking, man. I feel great, I feel good, I feel all the love," Willis said Sunday. "I throw all the support for my people right here, right now. I've never felt this, and I feel it right now. It's real, it's love, and I'm ready to walk."

Willis made the last eight miles of the walk surrounded by supporters Sunday morning.
