I was bullied throughout my school years in the 1960’s because of my height, being a nerd, having a speech defect, being physically awkward, and having poor social skills. My bullying was mostly name calling, usually while changing classes, since I never attended school events. To this day it is too painful to say out loud the names that I was called.
No Bully was thrilled to be back at the X Games for the third year in a row representing our bullying prevention program called Shred Hate which was created by ESPN, and is supported by the X Games and Major League Baseball. The highlight of these events is always interacting with the students that have gone through our Shred Hate program. The ultimate goal of Shred Hate is to decrease bullying incidents in schools by igniting the compassion of youth.
