Dr. Amy Kitching, the Statesboro resident behind the Anti-Bullying Event, says “I started the event because of my growing concern for children in our community”. “This is our 4th year hosting the event and we now not only work with children but adults as well in the community to help prevent and heal wounds of in-person and cyberbullying” says Dr. Amy.
