NORWICH- Every day, more than 160,000 children nationwide stay home from school to avoid being bullied. Not only are the effects of bullying on a child felt immediately, but they can also be lifelong – or even tragic. That’s why Norwich Bully-Busters is inviting the community to support the cause at its second annual Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying on Saturday, Oct. 6, as part of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month. Registration for Run, Walk Roll begins at 9 a.m., followed by a 1.5-mile fun walk/roll at 10 a.m. at Mohegan Park in Norwich. The entry fee is a donation towards the Norwich Bully-Busters. For more information and to register for the event, visit thebullybusters.webs.com or on facebook Norwich Bully-Busters or call 860-373-8630. All proceeds from the Run, Walk, Roll Against Bullying will go to Norwich Bully-Busters Programs. Also on Wednesday, Oct. 10 is Unity Day Unite Against Bullying and wear Orange and make it end! Lets all Unite against bullying! We will also have a First Friday For Youth Unity Dance for youth ages 11 through 15 at United Congregational Church 87 Broadway Norwich.
