On October 21, 2015 (Unity Day), the Community Foundation of Middlesex County and its Council of Business Partners hosted the second annual Rally for Bully-Free Communities. Close to three hundred students, teachers and partners from across Middlesex County and around the region attended the event. The students participated in team building activities led by Empower, The First Tee of Connecticut, and Rushford. Donny Marshall, Campaign Spokesman, encouraged everyone to be an UP-stander, not a bystander.
