Amanda Todd’s mom will be among the special guests at an anti-bullying awareness rally in Stettler later this month.

A victim of bullying, Todd committed suicide in her Port Coquitlam, B.C. home on Oct. 12 after posting a series of videos about the abuse she had suffered.

Her mother, Carol, will join others who have faced similar struggles during the youth rally, set for the West Stettler Park starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24.

Burgers, hot dogs and other snacks will be available for purchase and a number of local musicians have volunteered their time and talent for entertainment during the evening.

Any money raised during the event will be forwarded to the Clearview school district to help with Challenge Days, a high school program aimed at helping students understand and deal with bullying.

For details, please email gm@canaltastettler.com or call Brandi Page, 403-742-3371.
