Melbourne Victory players will use Saturday night's blockbuster match against Western Sydney to speak out against bullying as the club joins forces with the Bully Free Australia Foundation.
Melbourne Victory Captain, Adrian Leijer said: “Melbourne Victory don-t tolerate Bullying in any form. We urge everyone at the game to Stand Up and Step Up to Bullying. At Victory, we say give Bullying the Boot.”
A staggering one in four people are affected by Bullying. Cyber Bullying affects as many as four out of ten, with often devastating results. The Bully Free Australia Foundation say 'enough is enough'.
Bully Free Australia CEO Oscar Yildiz said: “We are excited to launch a partnership with Melbourne Victory. The Foundation exists to support victims of Bullying and their families. We will achieve this by delivering education programs to schools, workplaces and community groups. We aim to educate and empower the policing of Bullying and get the message out that Bullying in any form is unacceptable.”
Ali Halkic who lost his son, Allem, four years ago after relentless cyber bullying will speak to the crowd on Saturday night on behalf of the Bully Free Australia Foundation. Bully Free volunteers will be at the ground providing more information about the work of the Foundation and collecting donations.
