Dutchess Mediation Center hosts event on Walkway
Anti-bullying Walk raises $12,000
More than 300 people from throughout the Hudson Valley spoke out against bullying Saturday on the Walkway Over the Hudson. The fourth annual Anti-bullying Walkathon, hosted by the Mediation Center of Dutchess County, raised more than $12,000 for the agency’s anti-bullying programs. “We get (reports about bullying incidents) every month from school officials, from young people and their parents,” said Jody Miller, executive director of the Mediation Center. “Bullying is preventable, but it takes the whole community. Holding this event enables us to develop multiple strategies to combat bullying in conjunction with our community partners.”
