FLINT, Mich. (AP) -

A procession of emergency vehicles is planned across Michigan in honor of Connecticut school shooting victims.

The Flint Journal reports each vehicle will have the name, birthday and date of death for 20 children killed Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown. The Jan. 5 procession aims to raise money for funeral expenses and a memorial.

The procession will head north from the Michigan Welcome Center on Interstate 75 near the Ohio border.

The route is expected to take the procession through cities including Detroit, Flint, Madison Heights, Royal Oak, Troy, Pontiac, Flint, Lansing, Saginaw, Bay City, Gaylord, Petoskey, Mackinac City and St. Ignace. It will end with a vigil in Sault Ste. Marie.

The procession is organized by Steven Major, president of Arrowhead Police Emergency Vehicle Equipment.
