Anti-Bullying Event at Johnny G's

Reclaiming Ground will host a free anti-bullying event sponsored by Dr. Johnny Gayton of Eyesight Associates, Saturday, April 2, 11 a.m. to 4p.m., at Johnny G’s Fun Center.

That's according to a news release.

The ‘Be a Buddy, Not a Bully’ event highlights include a symposium featuring Dr. Gayton as the keynote speaker, and a discussion and a ‘feats of strength’ performance by Willie Raines, C.E.O. of Reclaiming Ground, Incorporated. Activities are designed to bring a keener awareness to bullying behavior and prevention.

Bullying can take many forms and has become a major local and national problem potentially jeopardizing the lifeblood of the community-our youth. Speakers will make special mention of cyber bullying.  According to cyber bullying statistics from the i-SAFE foundation, more than 1 in 3 young people have experienced cyber threats online.

The event is part of a larger campaign to help students in Warner Robins succeed in school by minimizing the effects of bullying in the community. Sadly, over 160,000 students miss school each day due to fears of being bullied, according to the National Association of School Psychologists.

Several other local businesses rallied to donate to the event, and proceeds will support future local events and programs which aim to invigorate students and strengthen them to succeed.
