Bullying Awareness Walk


BullyingWalk_052715ANorth Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are teaming up with local school districts and community activists for the 3rd Annual Bullying Awareness Walk at North Hempstead Beach Park on Saturday, May 30th at 11 a.m.
The idea of the Bullying Awareness Walk was first introduced 2 years ago by a group of students from Herricks High School who decided to form an Anti-Bullying group called the “Young Optimistic Upstanders.” For the third year in a row, the young fearless group is back again to partner with the Town, along with students from East Williston, Roslyn, Carle Place, Westbury, Herricks, and Manhasset.
“This event is an outlet for students to share their feelings and experiences with others who have been in similar situations, while teaching students to take a stand against bullying,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We are so excited to be partnering with such an amazing group of young activists in the community who are committed to this important cause.”
The program will commence with a walk around North Hempstead Beach Park, followed by a keynote speech from Adrianna Sgarlata Schweizer, a former Miss Virginia who has spoken on Capitol Hill and made over 200 appearances nationwide in an effort to ensure that every child has the opportunity to grow up without fear from bullies.
Students from schools across the Town will provide musical entertainment throughout the day.
