LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Lansing Eastern High School hosted some extreme speakers to talk to teens about stopping bullying.

A dozen professional skateboarders, BMX bikers and skaters showed off their skills.

It’s part of a tour traveling the country to spread the message of the Anti-Defamation League’s ‘No Place for Hate’ campaign.

“It’s part of the whole anti-bullying campaign, it’s part of the presentation and its sponsored by the Marine Corp and so we welcome these guys and these are world class athletes that we are excited to have them at Eastern High School,” said Joe Mendez, Athletic Director, Lansing Eastern High School.

The group will head onto Okemos High School on Thursday and St. Johns High School on Friday.
