Run, Walk and Roll for Unity event on tap

NEW PALESTINE — Leaders of the Community School Corp. of Southern Hancock County are planning their annual anti-bullying Run, Walk and Roll for Unity event for Sept. 9.

Anyone registering before Sept. 1 will receive a free t-shirt. Shirts can be picked up Sept. 8 at New Palestine High School, the day before the event. The cost is $5 for students and $10 for adults.

Two different walks — a one-mile course at New Palestine High School and a longer 4.5-mile course with participants leaving from Doe Creek Middle School and ending at the high school — will be part of the event. Entertainment and information on bullying will be part of the event as well.

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. with the Walk, Run and Roll starting at 9 a.m.

People taking part in the anti-bullying event are invited to  be part of the New Palestine Lions Club parade as part of the community fall festival set for 11 a.m.  immediately following the run.
