We all have been affected in some way by the Covid-19 pandemic, and right now it seems nearly impossible to get out and stay active.

This is an event you can feel good about!

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and we believe that bullying ends with YOU! Nationwide, 160,000 children stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied - and the effects can be life-long, even tragic. Bullying victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University. Suicide rates have doubled over the past 10 years and bullying is now at crisis levels.

Now in its 2nd year, the #BeAFriend is a fundraising event benefiting Raising Be.YOU.tiful Butterflies, a nonprofit organization working to empower, educate, and motivate girls between the ages of 4-21 by transforming self-doubt into self-love through dialogue about things that matter every day. Held during National Bullying Prevention month. The goal of the event is to promote awareness about bullying and show support for those who have been bullied, uniting the community in a campaign to keep all youth safe from bullying. There will be opportunities to have fun and learn more about bullying, its effects and how to help put a stop to it. We believe that in order to end bullying, an entire community must work together towards a solution, hope to see you there!

An empowered girl is in touch with her voice. She recognizes that her voice matters, that she matters. An empowered girl believes in herself, has the confidence to express herself in the company of her peers as well as adults, she knows that she can do and be anything she sets her mind, and lives in a community where she is treated equally, where parents, peers, and role models supports her growth and her goals.
