Brock Badgers host event on bullying

Hundreds of Niagara's elementary students will be at Brock this morning for the Badgers men's basketball team's third annual event on bullying.

Eight hundred elementary school students in grades 6-8 from 13 schools are expected to attend

The symposium will help educate students  about a variety of social issues.

Badger's coach Charles Kissi says he wants students to know they are never alone, there's always someone else experiencing it or who is there to help.

And he adds the event also teaches his players about the importance of being role models

Following the speeches the kids will take in a preseason exhibition game featuring the Badgers and Redeemer Royals.
