(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - The Walk For Tibet that the nephew of Dalai Lama was on when he was killed will continue.

Jigme Norbu was struck and killed while on the trek from St. Augustine to West Palm Beach last week.

Norbu's brother, Kunga Norbu, along with Jigme's two oldest sons are in Florida today to walk in Jigme's steps and finish what he started.

Norbu says his brother took up the mission of bringing awareness to the plight of the Tibetan people after their father took ill.

Thubten Norbu is brother to the Dalai Lama and founder of the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington.
