Resorts World Las Vegas, along with basketball fans Tristan Jass and Mamadou N'Diaye, have partnered with Buckets Over Bullying to raise cyberbullying awareness. Together, they will host “Full Court March” from March 14 through April 3.
The event will specifically address rising concerns related to cyberbullying among growing youth. Full Court March coincides with both the NCAA men’s and women’s tournament schedules.
Buckets Over Bullying Co-Founder Rose Bronstein commented: "Cyberbullying is an urgent crisis affecting children and families all over the country. We are extremely grateful to Resorts World Las Vegas, Tristan and Mamadou for helping us educate and compel action by both youth and adults to combat this scourge.
"No one should have to endure the grief and suffering cyberbullying has forever inflicted upon our family. The time is now, and the need is urgent, for better cyber abuse protections for the dangerous digital world our children now inhabit.
"Like any winning team, everyone has a role to play in demanding meaningful change and accountability for cyberbullies and those who enable them."
Buckets Over Bullying is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to encouraging young people to engage in healthy online interactions. Along with Resorts World Las Vegas, Jass and N’Diaye, Buckets Over Bullying will work to spread the “Never Use Your Device as a Weapon” message to teens and young adults.
Resorts World Las Vegas Executive Director of Community Engagement Lori Flahive-Caldero said: "At Resorts World Las Vegas, we believe in the power of sports to bring people together and promote positive change.
"That's why we're proud to partner with Buckets Over Bullying for Full Court March, a celebration of basketball and a stand against bullying.
"We hope this event will inspire our community to come together and promote kindness, respect, and inclusion both on and off the court."
