WHAT: Eastern Heights Elementary in St. Paul, Minnesota, will host action sports athletes and X Games personalities on Wednesday, May 10, to visit with students in support of Shred Hate, ESPN and X Games’ bullying prevention program that aims to increase awareness about the bullying epidemic and reduce bullying rates in Minnesota schools.
By teaming up with some of the most innovative nonprofits in the country – No Bully, GLSEN and Crisis Text Line – X Games hopes to reach students no matter what stage they are in – to prevent bullying from happening, to help those already affected and to reach those who are in a state of crisis. A successful in-market launch in Colorado reached schools, spectators and viewers of X Games Aspen 2017.
WHO: The action sports athletes and personalities speaking with students will include World of X Games host Brandon Graham, Stillwater local and invited X Games Minneapolis Skateboard athlete Nicole Hause, 10-time gold medalist Snowmobile and Minnesota native athlete Tucker Hibbert and eight-time gold medalist Snowmobile athlete and Minnesota native Mike Schultz.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 10 at 10 a.m.
WHERE: Eastern Heights Elementary | 2001 Margaret Street, St. Paul, MN 55119
