The money we raise will be used stand up against bullying. 

At some point in life, we've all felt the pain caused from social labeling. Labels create an imbalance of power and control in our schools, workplace and communities - often leading to bullying and the bystander effect. 

The Epidemic: 

Every 7 minutes a child is bullied. 
1 in 7 students is either a bully or a victim of bullying. 
Over 50% of all bullying incidents go unreported. 
Bullying intervention by adults is 4%, by peers is 11% and no intervention is 85%. 
6 out of 10 American teens witness bullying at least once a day. 
1 out of every 10 students drops out or changes schools because of repeated bullying. 
About 282,000 students are reportedly attacked in high school in the U.S. each month. 
71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school. 
90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying. 
An estimated 160,000 students miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. 
Suicide is the third leading cause of death amongst young people, and kids that are bulled are 50% more likely to consider taking their own life. 
Nearly 1/3 of middle school students have been the object of sexual jokes, comments or gestures. Another 15% have been bullied or harassed because of their religion or race. 

Enough is enough. It's time to Defeat the Label. Now is the time to stand up against bullying. Join us as we run thDetroit Free Press Talmer Bank Marathon on 10/19/2014 and be part of this historic rallying point for the anti-bullying movement.
