WICHITA, Kansas – Some Wichita students took part in an anti-bullying initiative Thursday.

The elementary, middle and high school students were in the Million T-Shirt March.

The goal was to unite by wearing the same design of T-shirt, one with a message against bullying: “It’s Time to Put an End to Bullying.”

The students who took part at South High joined hands and created a large peace symbol.

“Bullying is an issue that affects people when they’re young, and all the way up until they’re older,” said Laura Almquist-Parks, South High support staff. “It can have big emotional and physical effects.”

In addition to bringing attention to their anti-bullying efforts, students across the nation hope to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for the most people wearing the same shirt on the same day.

In Wichita, students at Jackson Elementary, Horace Mann Dual Language Magnet, Wilbur Middle School, Cloud Elementary and those at South High took part in the event.
