We have helped this amazing organization before. I feel so honored that they are allowing us to help them once again. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Run Walk Roll Against Bullying Event Nevada PEP is leading the movement against bullying. Over the years, parents have called PEP saying their child does not want to go to school because they are getting bullied, our kids are dropping out of school, and parents are saying their child does not feel safe in their own school. While bullying doesn’t always leave bruises or broken bones, it can leave deep emotional scars that last a lifetime. Bullying is a serious issue that occurs throughout our schools every day and without interventions bullying can lead to serious academic, social, and emotional problems. The Run Walk Roll is an annual event. This year the 9th Annual Run Walk Roll event will be held on Saturday, October 19h at UNLV Festival Plaza. Last year we had close to 1,800 participants and this year we are expecting a much larger crowd. The Run Walk Roll is a 5k fun run and a 1.5 fun walk. We are bringing awareness and bullying prevention to the forefront. As a community we all need to be involved in all of our children's education. Kids with and without disabilities are getting bullied, we all need to take a stand against bullying to keep all children safe. Did you know...
