Kindness Color Walk
Noble Park, 2801 Park Ave., Paducah, Ky.
The Guess Anti-Bullying Foundation is hosting the first annual Paducah Kindness Color Walk. Participants will walk a route through the Greenway Trail.
The goal is to bring the entire community – students, parents, teachers, and community members, together for a fun event to start the school year off with a focus on kindness. A walk versus a run was planned so it to be fun and not competitive. It is about building friendships and opening a discussion about how kindness can lead the way to a better school culture.
At the event, there will be a Kindness Wall where participants can leave positive, kind messages on colorful sticky notes. The Paducah Tilghman High School marching band will play and the McCracken County cheerleaders will cheer everyone on. The Paducah Fire Department will spray off their splashes of color and Bob Dog is coming to lead the way.
Organizers are asking for participants to bring school supplies which will be donated to the United Way “Stuff the Truck” project and shared with various shelters in the area where students go for help.
Registration is $10 and includes a t-shirt for pre-registered walkers. Shirts will be available for walk-up registrations on August 8 while supplies last. The registration form can be found at www.guessantibullying.com. Proceeds from the event will be used to provide anti-bullying resources and speakers to our area schools. Questions can be sent to Susan Guess at firstname.lastname@example.org.
