"Be a buddy, not a bully"--that was the message that rang through Rec Park in Binghamton from little super heroes.
The annual Stand for Children was super hero themed, to teach children to find their inner strength to fight bullying. Children dressed as their favorite super heroes and marched through the park in a motion to take a stand against bullies.
"It's really important to teach young people to not only stand up for themselves, but that they have the power to stand up for other people. And to really play a leadership role and not be a follower," said Amy Humphrey, Director, Liberty Partnership Programs.
The event also featured booths where children could brainstorm their super powers and a basketball tournament.
