MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A run Saturday morning helped raise awareness for bullying prevention and gave kids a chance to feel like superheroes.

It was Pacer’s Run, Walk, Roll against bullying.

They crossed the finish line wearing a cape and were congratulated by Vikings cheerleaders and Viktor the Vikings mascot.

The event helps kick off Pacer’s national bullying prevention month in October.

Since 2011, Pacer also has a special day on Oct. 22 called Unity Day, which works to bring the community together against bullying.
