Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying

A family-friendly event held by schools, clubs, businesses, or communities to raise awareness of bullying prevention, provide education, and visibly show commitment to keeping students safe at school, in the community, and online. In the past these events were held locally throughout October, but during the pandemic the Run, Walk, Roll transformed from one-day local events to a month-long, virtual, and nationwide event held for the duration of April.
