Last year, GLAAD established National Spirit Day to draw attention to the problem of bullying. To reinforce the anti-bullying message, students wore purple to school today.
This evening, the local chapter of GLAAD is sponsoring Get Amped, a 5K walk/run on the Katy Trail to benefit the national organization. The event begins at 7 p.m. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. in Reverchon Park.
Craig Cassey, a college student from Philadelphia who participates in track and was elected high school prom king last year, will be on hand for the event. He appeared on WFAA Channel 8 Daybreak this morning with Ron Corning. The video is below.
After the walk/run, the celebration at Reverchon Park moves to the Round-Up Saloon.
