The Travis County Sheriff’s Office, Oak Ranch, AISD, Run Tex, and Vess Conculting are pleased to announce the first annual anti-bullying run in Del Valle, TX. The run will take place Saturday, March 30th at 9 a.m. to create awareness and funds for the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), an organization that combats bullying and all forms of bigotry throughout Central Texas to secure fair treatment for all individuals.
One of the programs that the Anti-Defamation League created and supports is “No Place for Hate,” an anti-bullying and anti-bias program that now has a presence in over 200 Central Texas schools.
We envision this 5k as an opportunity to connect various communities around Austin. Bullying has unfortunately become so prevalent in today’s society, with an increasing presence through the Internet and within the walls of our schools. We want to come together to make a statement that bullying and discrimination will not be tolerated. There really is no place for hate, and we are hoping that this run will reiterate that.
