DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - The Mothers Opposing Bullying Foundation held a walk-a-thon at 7:30 a.m. Saturday at Anderson Bonner Park Trails in Dallas to raise funds for the launch of a 1-800 bullying hotline.

The new national hotline will “give helpless children an outlet when they feel as though they have nowhere else to turn,” a press release reads.
The event was supported by Massage Envy Spa, Starbucks, Walmart and Kroger, who each donated various foods or services.

In addition, a balloon artist was on-site for entertainment.

Event staff say the walk-a-thon will become an annual event.

This year’s registration fees were $20 for anyone 19 and older, or free for anyone 18 and under.According to its website, MOB is dedicated to:

“the eradication of bullying both of the victims and the bullies. It is our charter to work on putting the support through counseling, education and financially to rid us socially of this negatively impacting and potential life stealing act.”
