Event Details

Austin, TX—The Anti-Defamation League of Austin, the Travis County Sheriff's Office, the Austin Police Department, the Oak Ranch Community, and VESS Consulting Group are proud to present its second annual anti-bullying run benefiting the Anti-Defamation League of Austin. The 5K will take place at Oak Ranch Community (5717 Paseo Nuevo Circle Del Valle, TX) on Saturday, May 10th  to fight against bullying in our community and school systems. Registration is at 7 a.m. and the run will take place at 8 a.m. Children 10 and under run for free, young adults 17 and under run for $12, and adults 18 and older run for $25. Adult group rates (5 people or more) for $20 each person.

 

“Being in the family community, this is our way of giving back into the Austin community,” said Ernesto Iglesias, VP Sales & Marketing for Oak Ranch, who is leading the execution of the second annual 5K. The Stand Up 5K supports the “No Place for Hate®” initiative, which provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum. 

 

It has been reported that an estimated 160,000 kids miss school every day in fear of being verbally or physically bullied.  Additionally, about 25 percent of children in our school systems admit to having been bullied at one time or another, while about 20 percent of children admit to participating in acts of bullying.  The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Austin is an organization fighting against these alarming statistics in an effort to eliminate bullying and all forms of bigotry throughout Central Texas to secure fair treatment for all individuals

 

Taking action alongside Oak Ranch Community are the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, the Austin Police Department, the Austin Anti-Defamation League, the Del Valle School District and VESS Consulting Group. Youth gym, Yes! Fitness and women's active apparel line, Brasil Sul, are local businesses also supporting the cause. Brasil Sul will sell clothing at the Stand Up 5K with 10 percent of the proceeds going to the Anti-Defamation League.

 

We want to come together to make a statement that bullying and discrimination will not be tolerated.  Bullying, gossip, and other forms of hate are often simply seen as part of the growing up process.  We believe that there really is no place for hate, and we are hoping this run will reiterate that.
