A few years ago, Mr. Ballentine started a campaign he calls "Bully the Bull" because his daughter, Maurquavia Haney, then a middle schooler in a SCS school was bullied. Now Maurquavia is a 10th grader at Germantown High School. This past Sunday, the NFL annual My Cause My Cleats Campaign allowed Linval Joseph (Nose Tackle for the Minnesota Viking) to choose a cause to highlight. Linval was once a victim of bullying and decided to make Bully the Bull (from Memphis, TN) his cause.
Monday, Maurquavia told her story to children at a YMCA in Minnesota and Bully the Bull did a meet and greet with the children. Today, Maurquavia visited two schools in the area and participated in a toy give away.
