This year NOVA will hold our 10th Annual NO BULLying Run in October to coincide with National Bullying Awareness Month. Participants will log their miles virtually as we run, walk, roll, or stroll, collecting miles through October 31st.
At NOVA, we believe that education is the key to prevention and for more than 35 years, NOVA staff have been providing FREE prevention education programs to tens-of-thousands of students on topics such as personal safety, healthy relationships, harassment, cyberbullying, and bully-free classrooms. NOVA programs are designed to be innovative, supportive, age-appropriate, and help children and teens build safety awareness, develop self-advocacy skills, and recognize resources available to them. Last year, NOVA provided nearly 500 prevention education programs to over 12,000 students!
Join us this October as we collectively run, walk, roll, or stroll 22,808 miles against bullying! Each mile represents one child who will be bullied in Bucks County this year (according to statistics from Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center).
