Bowling Event To Raise Awareness of Bullying

Meghan Marks

The “Strike Against Bullying” fundraiser organized by Miss Delray Beach Teen USA will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept. 21, 2012, at Jupiter Lanes. A donation of $20 is requested.

Participating bowlers will get two hours on the lanes with shoe rental.

The benefiting charity is the Kidsafe Foundation, whose mission is to teach safety skills to children and lower the rate of child abuse and bullying.

“I wanted to raise awareness about bullying,” said Meghan Marks, 16, who is organizing the event with her mother. “I was personally bullied in middle school and high school and wish I was given the advice and skills that the Kidsafe Foundation has developed.

“The proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the Kidsafe Foundation,” the Jupiter High School student continued. “I love that they speak in schools and educate students, parents, teachers, etc., regarding bullying. It’s hard enough growing up, but the added stress of being bullied makes life so miserable for many kids. I just want to make a difference and help out.
