Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund Great Kindness Challenge – Urbana, OH

January 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 30, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

This year’s Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund Season for Nonviolence began with the Great Kindness Challenge (GKC) from Monday, January 27, 2020—Friday, January 30, 2020. This bullying-prevention initiative aims to improve school climate and increases student engagement for Pre- K–12 students, and creates a culture of kindness.

Students are encouraged to perform as many acts of kindness as they can throughout the challenge, and throughout the rest of the year.

More than 5,600 students, faculty and staff from the Urbana City Elementary School, Graham Local School District, West Liberty Salem School District, and the Mechanicsburg School District, as well as the Champaign County Library took part in this global event.

Some schools involved extended their week of kindness to a month, and some have committed to practicing kindness throughout the entire school year.

Families and community members have joined in, too. You may visit the Kids for Peace Great Kindness Challenge website to download the Family Edition checklist here.

The Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund was founded to honor the memory of Alicia Titus, who was killed by terrorists during the attacks of 9/11 while serving as a flight attendant aboard United Airlines Flight 175, the plane that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

The Alicia Titus Memorial Peace Fund carries on the spirit of Alicia’s life by sponsoring programs for the University and community that promote and support peace.
