A family youth rally is planned for Saturday in Stettler to champion anti-bullying efforts.

The picnic at West Stettler Park is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.

Among the scheduled speakers are bullying victim Mackenzie Murphy of Airdrie and her mother, Tara Murphy, along with the late Amanda Todd’s mother, Carol.

Games, food, prizes and entertainment are also part of the program, which organizers say highlights inclusiveness. Anti-bullying campaigns are taking shape in communities and schools across the province and beyond.

Anyone who would like to donate to the Stettler event, or volunteer for the day, is asked to contact local organizer Brandi Page at 587-282-1402 or gm@canaltastettler.com.

Donations can also be made to “Free to be You and Me” at ATB Stettler.

“Take a stand against bullying,” organizers said in a news release.
