Colts Neck High School students are rallying for the race against bullying on April 22, raising awareness about the negative impacts of bullying and encouraging confidence.
“Our goals are to raise awareness of bullying in the community, educate fellow students about the anti-bullying laws and to instill confidence in those that have suffered from bullying,” said Student Coordinator, Juliana Wittmann.
The “Striding Toward Confidence 5K Race” is one of the Colts Neck High School Law & Public Service Learning Center’s service learning projects for the 2011-12 school year.
All proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Monmouth County Advocacy Center, Inc., a not-for-profit organization that raises funds to support the Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center. The Monmouth County Child Advocacy Center works to diminish trauma to children and families who are victims of abuse.
The race will commence Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 10 a.m. at CNHS located at 59 Five Points Road, Colts Neck. Registration is scheduled for 9 a.m.
