The event took place at Empower Leadership Sports in Middletown. FOX 61’s Sarah Cody was the emcee. Participants took a pledge to stand together against bullying and all mean-spirited behavior.

The aim is to create a culture of positive choices and develop the leadership and empowerment skills necessary for creating a safe and healthy learning environment.
