You’ve heard the insults. Maybe you’ve been on the receiving end, maybe you’ve witnessed the abuse, or maybe you’re even the one who’s shouted them. Bullying is immune to no one, and its effects are far reaching and highly damaging.
The fact is that 10 million total students are bullied each year in the U.S. Being a target of bullying has been found to have a range of negative impacts, including reduced self-esteem, depression and anxiety, and increased alcohol and drug use.
Sports can be both a cause and a refuge from bullying. Taunting and name calling on the field and in the locker room has long been a source of bullying. However, our athletes have said that action sports can be a positive avenue for athletes and youth who may not fit into “traditional” team sports. That’s why X Games is working to take a stand against bullying and Shred Hate through a collaborative effort with some of the most innovative bullying prevention programs in the country.
The year-long Shred Hate campaign will officially kickoff in January with X Games Aspen 2017 and will continue through X Games Minneapolis in July and into the school year. Elements will activate students to stand up to bullying with their peers as part of a national campaign, and will also include an intensive in-school curriculum for schools near X Games locations, as well as on-site bullying prevention information and activities at the Games.
