Team Madison! I am honored to be the co-chair for NVEEE's Annual Strike Out Bullying Fundraiser, benefiting its Peace Ambassador Leadership Summit (PALS). PALS is a place where teens go to build their leadership and life skills.
My bowling lane is dedicated to sponsoring the cost of attendance for a student named Ricardo! Want to know a little more about him? When asked the question, "Besides earning service hours, why is it important to you to attend a conference like PALS?" This was his answer.
"Because PALS is an open space where people can feel relief from the hell real life can be, and I have the availability to help those who really need it. It also provides skills that better me as a leader and as an individual. In order to make a positive change in the world, I've got to start with the man in the mirror."
Have you or someone close to you ever been bullied? Please explain the situation and outcome: This was his answer
"I suffered all sorts of bullying, from physical bullying, to verbal bullying, to labeling, to social alienation... I've also had a variety of friends suffer from all kinds of bullying to all sorts of degrees, some being just really sad and others getting to suicidal thoughts. I always tried to help those friends because I knew how much they were suffering, and I never want see them go through that."
On Sunday, July 9th join us at “Brunch and Bowl to Strike out Bullying” and help raise money to support NVEEE's Peace Ambassador Leadership Summit (PALS) for high school students. Whether you are a young professional just entering the workforce, or someone more seasoned and ready for retirement, we can all agree on one thing, BULLYING SUCKS! This is an opportunity for you to make a difference in the lives of young people in South Florida schools by connecting with other young professionals and network for a good cause.
