The Rochester Knighthawks are trying to prevent bullying in local schools.

Irondequoit native and Knighthawks forward Joe Walters and Tyler Burton will share their stories with more than 300 sixth and seventh graders at Burger Middle School in Henrietta Monday as part of the team’s “We Got Your Back” anti-bullying program.

Burton said, “It’s a good opportunity to make a difference and help shed some light on the rise of bullying in our schools.”

In November, the team took their message to Cosgrove Middle School in Spencerport. The next school they plan to visit is Oliver Middle School in Brockport.
