MATCOR, Inc., the trusted full-service provider of proprietary cathodic protection products, systems and corrosion engineering solutions, recently joined the fight against bullying by becoming a Silver Sponsor of the Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) Second Annual No Bullying Run, scheduled for June 14, 2014 at Doylestown's Central Park.
Every day, an average of 160,000 American children miss school out of a fear of bullying, according to statistics from the National Education Association.
"We have learned through NOVA’s efforts that bullying among school age children has become a national epidemic. MATCOR believes in supporting the important work of local organizations like NOVA, and we are pleased to sponsor the No Bullying Run," said Douglas Fastuca, President of MATCOR, Inc.
In addition to supporting NOVA financially, MATCOR encourages employees to get involved with local charities. Heather Davis, MATCOR human resources specialist, serves on NOVA’s Young Advisory Board and helped with planning and fundraising for this year’s No Bullying Run.
The No Bullying Run aims to raise community awareness on the dangers and prevalence of bullying. Proceeds will go towards NOVA's Prevention Education initiatives to implement bullying prevention and intervention programs in several local schools.
The No Bullying Run includes a 5-mile run, 1-mile fun run and various activities geared toward promoting healthy self-esteem and respect. The event will also features live entertainment, raffles, silent auction, and other family- and child-friendly activities. Proceeds will benefit NOVA’s Prevention Education initiatives, which deliver school-age programs on bullying prevention and intervention in local schools.
