DETAILS: Nearly 160,000 students stay home DAILY due to bullying and nearly 60 percent of all middle school students say they have been bullied. In an effort to put an end to bullying, a number of community partners have joined forces to host the community event the No Bully Zone.
This community event will raise funds for the nationally known anti-bullying organization Angels & Doves, headquartered in Indianapolis, Ind. Angels & Doves is a nationwide 501(c) (3) nonprofit charity that is dedicated to bringing awareness, education and prevention of bullying to all youth ages 5-18.
The No Bully Zone is a family-friendly event with games, food and activities for people of all ages. Activities include a free Kid-zone featuring corn hole, bounce houses, the Fire Department’s smoke house and Tilly the mini ladder truck, which kids can ride in. There will also be a dunk tank, face painting and clowns and a military Humvee.
Any individual who makes a donation to Angels & Doves will receive a free game of laser tag. If you are in the area, please stop by.
I am so glad to see that Cummins is supporting the NO BULLIES organization. This awareness is truly needed to stop so many young people from killing themselves because of the harsh comments from bullies. I have printed this page and hope to take my family to the event. One suggestion would be to have a way for someone who reads this article to make a donation towards the event’s goal that can not attend. Thanks for sharing the news.
