Strike Out Bullying!
The Tri-City ValleyCats are proud to have created an anti-bullying campaign in collaboration with BlueShield of Northeastern New York, that features a children's workbook, mascot skit and peace pledge designed to help children understand what bullying is and how to properly treat others.
Each season, the Tri-City ValleyCats team up with BlueShield for the K's for Kids program. For each strikeout ValleyCats pitchers recorded at home, BlueShield donates ten dollars to the Capital District YMCA, to help fund the Y's Reach Out for Youth Scholarship Program.
Anti-Bullying Mascot Skit performed in front of elementary students at School 14 in Troy:
I pledge to respect people even if they are different than me.
I will stand up and speak out against bullying.
I will show other kindness and eliminate hurtful behavior.
I will help others, be a friend, and include everyone despite our differences.
I pledge to be a part of the ValleyCats team, and strike out bullying!
