On Saturday, June 3, 2017, hundreds of walkers, skaters, and cyclists will take to the streets for two miles to walk & roll out bullying. From 8am-2pm, from Fields Corner Branch Library to Lena Park Community Development (with entertainment, vendors, music, and food), activists will take a stand. The walk covers all forms of bullying including:
- Government bullying
- LGBTQ bullying
- School bullying
- Workplace bullying
You can help
You can join us on June 3 and/or give beforehand. Boston’s First Bullying Walk & Roll-A-Thon will benefit three groups at risk for bullying:
- 2Fruits Productions Youth Mentoring Program, designed for “at risk” youth to develop skills. Donations will fund laptops, production supplies (cameras, mics, tapes, and lighting), educational textbooks, music and art education programs, physical education sessions, facilitators, and more.
- XMEN Scholarship Fund, which provides college scholarships to high school seniors every year.
- BlackberryRadio.com, our sole sponsor and an advocate for women’s rights. Funds will help the station run.
We need your help
You can volunteer your time and/or money. Total family involvement builds awareness, and we ask each participant to raise $92.85, with a total goal of $13,000. The three children who reach more than their target goal will receive prizes.
