SAYREVILLE, N.J. (AP) Hundreds of people are expected to attend an anti-bullying rally in a central New Jersey town that's been rocked by allegations of hazing on its football team that prompted the cancellation of the rest of the season.
Sunday night's rally will be held in a park across the street from Sayreville War Memorial High School. Organizers say the goal of the event is to promote unity and healing within the community, as well as to show support for the victims of bullying.
Participants will be given balloons, ribbons, stickers and candles. They will be asked to walk around the lake at Kennedy Park and eventually release the balloons or show other forms of support.
Seven students face sex-crime charges stemming from the alleged hazing.
