”Bouncing out Bullying” is set to return to the town of bath on August 10th at 6pm. A list of games and contests for all ages is listed below. This year’s show will be hosted by ‘Teens of America’ and we will be fundraising throughout the area to provide the community with T.O.A.’s magazines about the dangers of bullying. The event is free to the public and will provide not only students but parents as well, with the resources to help combat the issue of bullying/cyber bullying that is terrorizing young people today. We are welcoming back the most decorated martial artist in the state of Maine, martial arts hall of famer, and 2010 gold medalist from the USA Martial Arts team, Master Ed Hall. His demonstration team, ‘Team Extreme’ is set to perform once again this year.
Our keynote speaker will be a young man named Dax Catalano. When a cyber bullying incident spiraled out of control, it nearly cost Dax his life. He will be sharing his story for the very first time in public at our event. Below is a link to Dax’s story on wcsh 6:
