Monster Trucks Tackle Bullies

Great News! The monsters are on the loose in the metro and they’re after the bullies.

Three drivers from Monster Jam at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs delivered a Crush Bullying message to approximately 70 kids on Thursday.

The children took a no bullying pledge and they signed a Crush Bullying decal for a cruiser car for Thursday night’s meet.

Thirteen-year-old Christopher Andersen said he gets the message loud and clear.

The Boys and Girls Club member told us, “Bullies aren't cool. They think they are but all they're doing is hurting themselves, the community and the people around them."

Monster Jam driver Candice Jolly said, “A lot of kids in this world are bullied every single day and they're afraid to tell anybody. And they're just taking this mental abuse and physical abuse. And so it's important for us to come out here and speak to these children and tell them that it's important that they tell somebody and get some outside help."

The boys and girls also got to try driving a radio-controlled Monster Truck. Even better, all the kids received free tickets for themselves and their families for Thursday night’s show.
