On November 27th, the 7th Annual Anti-Bullying Awareness Day, took place at MetLife Stadium where the New York Jets played against the Chicago Bears. The New York Jets won!
In attendance was STOMP Out Bullying, Youth Leader Emma Farley and her family, Summer Intern Garret Lasky and his family, long-time supporter and principal John Barnes and executives from Signature Bank.
We are so grateful to the Jets that this event takes place annually and through a 50/50 Raffle, the Jets donated $27,862.00 to STOMP Out Bullying. For the past seven years we have partnered with the Jets to prevent all forms of bullying. To date the Jets have co-hosted 5 Educator Symposiums with over 1,000 educators participating, conducted 30 school visits reaching over 10,000 students directly since 2015 and donated over 1,750 STOMP Out Bullying educator toolkits to schools with the potential to impact nearly 800,000 students. The Jets have provided more than 27,000 tickets to schools for incentives for students who prove to be upstanders. https://www.newyorkjets.com/community/tackle-bullying/
