THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED!
We are already planning a bigger and better event for 2017! Look for a summary of this year’s RUN WALK ROLL to be released next week.
ASK Resource Center, with support from Hy-Vee, Sam’s Club, and Black Tie Beats kicked off National Bullying Prevention Month with a 5K RUN WALK ROLL at Southeast Polk on Saturday, October 1! All of the proceeds from this event will benefit Walk the Talk Iowa, a project of ASK Resource Center that provides bullying prevention resources, training, and support for kids and families across the state of Iowa. Couldn’t make it but still want to show your support? Make a tax deductible donation!
Thanks to your support at past bully prevention walks, we have achieved tremendous gains in our efforts to prevent bullying!
Over the past two years our new bully training curriculum, “Bullying: Walking Through What You Can Do” has been designed, developed, reviewed, tested, and presented to various groups across the state, and to date, we’ve trained 103 parents, 545 students, and nearly 200 educators and other professionals on bully prevention. 3,165 bully prevention resources have been distributed through the various training workshops, and according to participant surveys, 99% of training participants indicated the training curriculum had “greatly increased their knowledge of the types of bullying and bully prevention.” Even more exciting is the fact that we’ve trained eight volunteer trainers from all over Iowa to present our bully curriculum!
