Stand Up! 6th Annual Anti-bullying Walkathon Hands Against Bullying Held


The Mediation Center of Dutchess County held its 6th Annual Anti-bullying Walkathon - Hands Against Bullying Walk on

the Walkway Over The Hudson Saturday, April 22, 2017 to increase community education and action on bullying- an issue that

effects people right here in the Hudson Valley.

THANK YOU to all of the sponsors and participants who all made this event a success! A special thank you to

Senator Sue Serino for attending and sharing her story as well.


Children frequently involved in bullying are at a significant risk of withdrawing from school activities, poor school performance, as

well as suffering from various health problems such as anxiety, depression, sleeping difficulties, suicide attempts and in some cases,

even suicide completion.
