Coming up on Friday Ray Rice is launching an event called a Ray of Hope.
It's a pro-kindness anti-bullying teen suicide outreach program. The goal is to bring attention to the problem of bullying.
The recent suicide of a Howard County high school student Grace McComas makes the event so much more important.
In April Glenelg High School student 15-year-old Grace McComas committed suicide after she was bullied on social media web sites.
A community in Howard County planted a memorial garden in her honor yesterday.
Ray Rice held a similar event in may at Howard High School to discuss bullying.
Friday's event will offer a 22 minute powerful film put together entirely by students.
The McComas Family says it's important to educate parents and children about bullying.
The event kicks off on Friday July 13th. Doors open at 6pm. The event runs from 7pm to 9pm at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia.
It's free and open to the public, but you must RSVP at www.rayrice27.com . Kids under 13 need to be with a parent.
