Bullying has become a real problem, and it is not really a new problem.  Bullying has been going on for years and years, but it feels like it wasn't until recently that the problem actually came to light.  And luckily, there are measures being taken to make people aware of bullying and hopefully put an end to it.  Mark April 22 on your calendar to be part of the cause.

The Mediation Center of Dutchess County will hold its 6th Annual Anti-bullying Walkathon, Hands Against Bullying Walk on the Walkway Over The Hudson on Saturday, April 22 to increase community education and action on bullying.  Proceeds will support all aspects of the Center's anti-bullying initiative that includes expanding prevention and response resources to effectively address bullying right here in the Hudson Valley.

The event will start on the Poughkeepsie side of the Walkway Over the Hudson. Registration is at 8:30 am, the walk starts at 9.  For more information, visit https://www.dutchessmediation.org/events.
