New York Riveters’ Madison Packer Stands up to Bullying

Posted: 11/10/2015

Though Madison Packer of the New York Riveters hockey team has never personally experienced bullying, she became aware of the effect it could have on a child’s life when she began working with a suicide awareness and prevention organization after the suicide of a close friend. Madison has since made it her personal mission to help prevent bullying by talking about it with the children she coaches and visiting schools to discuss ways to stop it.

In October 2015, Madison held an online fundraising campaign for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center using Twitter. Madison encouraged her fans to Tweet and share photos using the hashtags #StopBullying and #MakeADifference, promising that she would donate for each one. As a result, Madison raised nearly $300 for the National Bullying Prevention Center.
