BENEFITING: Kidsbridge

EVENT: Second Annual KIDSBRIDGE WALK2STOP BULLYING

EVENT DATE: Jun 06, 2013

THE STORY:

Nobody wants to be bullied. Children need to feel empowered to put an end to it. Help us help our children!

 

Why is an anti-bullying walk particularly important at this time? Because bullying is a serious problem that negatively impacts hundreds of thousands of people each day. Not just kids, all people.  And cyberbullying is escalating at an alarming rate. More than 160,000 kids in the U.S. avoid school each day because they fear being bullied, according to the NJ Commission on Bullying in Schools report released in December 2012 (www.njbullying.org). According to the National Youth Violence Prevention Center, almost 30% of youth in the U.S. (over 5.7 million) are estimated to be involved in bullying as either a bully, a target of bullying, or both. Incessant 24/7 bullying too often results in youth suicides. Bullying should be considered intolerable — and the problem needs to be addressed now.

In  addition  to  bringing  the  community  together  in  solidarity  against  bullying,  funds  raised  from  the Walk will go towards Kidsbridge’s impactful and targeted programs. Each year 2,000 NJ youth and educators visit the Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum located on TCNJ’s campus to learn strategies to combat bullying and cyberbullying. The Museum’s interactive exhibits teach children to combat prejudice,  discrimination,  stereotypes,  name-calling  and  bullying  through  respect,  empathy and  compassion. The  Kidsbridge  Museum  program  is  evidence-based;  statistics  support  attitude improvements after spending just a single four-hour session in the Museum. And as the only youth-focused tolerance museum in the U.S., there is no other organization doing what Kidsbridge does. Whether it is a youngster having an epiphany about how his or her own actions affect others while visiting the Tolerance  Museum, a youth receiving guidance and finding the inspiration to finish high school or pursue college, or a student learning empowerment strategies to lessen the pain of victimization and end bullying, Kidsbridge is changing the lives of youth and educators in a profound and lasting way.
