WALTERS DIVING BACK INTO THE COMMUNITY
01/07/2014 - 11:29am

(January 7, 2014)… Rochester native and Knighthawks forward Joe Walters will take the team’s anti-bullying message to State Road Elementary on Friday, January 10th. Walters will speak to nearly 560 kids in grades K through 8 about recognizing the signs of bullying and how to handle various bullying situations. The Knighthawks mascot, R. Thunder, will also be in attendance.

The anti-bullying presentation, brought to you by Isaac Heating and Air Conditioning and Wellington Steele & Associates, is slated to begin at 9:30 a.m. at State Road Elementary, which is located at 1401 State Road. Walters will share his personal story of bullying and will present the students with the Knighthawks’ “We Got Your Back” anti-bullying message.

"I’m looking forward to speaking to the kids in Webster to help inform them about the ongoing problem of bullying. It’s important to teach kids at a young age. Hopefully, it will open their eyes,” said Walters.

The “We Got Your Back” program was created by Ann Marie Leonardi of Hurricanes Lacrosse and the Knighthawks adopted it at the beginning of their 2012 season. The State Road Elementary students will show their commitment to the program by signing a banner at the conclusion of Walters’ presentation.

The event is the eighth of the season for the Knighthawks, who have visited over 5,300 kids since the program started in October 2012. If you would like to learn more about the Knighthawks anti-bullying program, go to http://www.knighthawks.com/antibullying.

The Knighthawks will host the Philadelphia Wings on Saturday, January 11th at 7:30 p.m. at The Blue Cross Arena. Tickets are currently available by calling the Rochester Knighthawks’ office at (585) 454-4295.
