KNIGHTHAWKS TO TAKE ANTI-BULLYING MESSAGE TO GENEVA
01/27/2013 - 9:30am

(January 25, 2013)… Rochester Knighthawks Joe Walters, Dan Dawson and Tyler Burton will carry the team’s anti-bullying message to Geneva on Monday, January 28th at 3:30 p.m. The players will share their stories of bullying with 60 kids at the Geneva Family YMCA as part of the Knighthawks’ “We Got Your Back” anti-bullying program.

The Knighthawks players will provide students at the afterschool program with the signs of bullying and how to handle bullying situations. The players will encourage kids, ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade, to sign an anti-bullying banner that will hang in the YMCA located on Williams Street. It is estimated that about 30 percent of students in sixth through 10th grade in the United States are involved in bullying on a regular basis.

The appearance is the third anti-bullying event of the season by the defending NLL Champions. Cosgrove Middle School in Spencerport helped the Knighthawks launch the program, which was created by Ann Marie Leonardi of Hurricanes Lacrosse. Last season, the Knighthawks signed an anti-bullying pledge to kick off their 2012 season. The “We Got Your Back” program was supported by the players and the entire staff.

The Knighthawks next anti-bullying event is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5th at Oliver Middle School in Brockport.
