ELF’s ANNUAL STROLL & ROLL IS VIRTUAL
In response to the COVID-19 virus and in efforts to keep our community safe, ELF’s Stroll & Roll is VIRTUAL! Please join us on Saturday, July 18, as we prevent sexual assault, raise awareness about sexual assault and rape, and fundraise for ELF’s mission to prevent sexual assault through youth education and helping survivors heal.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL STROLL & ROLL?
Because we can’t officially ‘be’ together that doesn’t mean we can’t ‘come’ together as a community to prevent sexual assault. A virtual stroll & roll means you get to choose where, how and what time you participate in the #StrollandRollELF (even if Sunday is better for you, go for it!). We ask that if it’s right for you to share a pic or video on social media of your participation as we join together. This is a great opportunity to get outside, get some exercise, and support those in your community that need it most as we step in the right direction for our future with prevention.
Creative ideas to Stroll and Roll:
- Build a team
- A friend who is near by or far away (get those ear buds ready)
- No matter who you plan to be with, you’ll be doing it with OUR community!
- Walk or run
- Bike or hike
- Scooter, stroller, or skateboard
- Take a drive (take your race car out for a spin)
- We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
- Your neighborhood
- A park, path or trail
- A treadmill, Pelton, Elliptical
- A route to a destination
- Around your couch?
YOUR EFFORTS MATTER NOW
We had planned to launch a walk in 2020 and then COVID-19 happened. Schools closed and immediately the E.R.I.N Talk Prevention Curriculum was adapted so students could still learn from home. Due to the stay at home regulations people in unsafe home-life situations are being hit especially hard – school is a safe outlet for many children. As we gear up for the fall, we anticipate children will come back having experienced an increase of sexual harassment and assault and increased risky behaviors like sexting. Education and support will continue to be important.
Youth will need the opportunity to process and understand more about their behaviors, attitudes, and actions.
When you invest in preventative education, you are investing in a child who does not become a rapist and a student who does not become a victim or survivor.”
Imagine that. Understanding the world will continue to need virtual support the Erin Levitas Foundation has adapted and produced a number of webinars for caretakers/parents, survivors, individuals, families and communities. This work will continue. Your participation will ensure this education will remain available and the program will grow – therefore more children will be educated.
