Stop Bullying Now
Join the Fundraiser to Support “Be the Voice”

OCTOBER 15, 2017: SAVE THE DATE!!

Over 3 million kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in our nation. To combat this epidemic, Be THE Voice® was developed. BTV focuses solely on empowering the student bystander to find his/her “voice” when witnessing a bullying situation. Students have a great deal of influence over each other . . . they are truly the key to changing the culture of bullying in their schools.

At the completion of the first Be THE Voice® campaign, pre and post survey data revealed an astonishing 56% decrease in bullying (in our 2200 student beta test school). To date, 11 Georgia schools have implemented the BTV program, impacting over 20,000 students in less than 18 months. Other schools are requesting the program, and our goal is to introduce it into as many schools as possible.

To that end, Be THE Voice® is holding its first fundraiser, a Color Blast Fun Run, on Sunday, October 15, 2017, 2-6 pm at the Elkins Pointe Middle School Athletic Track, 11290 Elkins Road, Roswell, GA 30076.

This is the first ever, over-the-top, colorful fundraiser for Be THE Voice, and the funds raised at the event will be used to expand the program into additional schools and subsequently serve to empower kids to be upstanders and be positive forces in the world. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of all that?!

How can you help?

  • Event Sponsorships – various levels for corporate and individual sponsorship participation
  • Participant Sponsorships – for those students/families who may wish to participate but are unable
  • Participate – come run or walk the track and have colorful powder thrown on you, play in the inflatables, join

the dance off, eat yummy food, etc. . . . and bring your whole family!

More info to come very soon, but go ahead . . . right now . . . and mark it in your calendar.

Just be sure to make plans to be there on October 15th to help us Be THE Voice!
