Location: Canyon View Park in Grand Junction CO,
Details: Join Kindness Grows: Community Members Against Bullying in a Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying on September 15, 2019. Grand Junction, CO: Every day, more than 160,000 children stay home from school to avoid being bullied. Not only are the effects of bullying felt immediately but can also lead to lifelong mental health issues. That’s why Kindness Grows is inviting the community to support the cause at its first-ever Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying on Sunday, September 15th, as a part of PACER’s thirteenth annual National Bullying Prevention Month. The month is sponsored each year by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, which is based in Minneapolis, Minn. And educates communities nationwide to prevent bullying through creative and interactive resources. Learn more about the PACER’s resources at PACER.org/bullying. Registration for the Run, Walk, Roll begins at 1:30 pm at Canyon View Park in Grand Junction CO, followed by a 5k (3.1 miles) run at 2 pm and 1.5-mile walk/roll at 3 pm, and the opportunity to tour local resource booths. This event is FREE and open to the public. “Bullying can lead to painful results not only for the youth who are bullied, but for the students who engage in it, the school, and the community as a whole,” said Georgia Hoaglund from Western Colorado Area Health Education Center. “This is a very real and painful issue that kids are facing,” said Julie Hertzog, director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. “But they don’t have to face it alone, and bullying can be prevented if we all work together.” For more information on this upcoming event, contact Kirstie Aragon at 970.434.5474 x6 or karagon@wcahec.org.
