LATROBE, PA – The Fred Rogers Institute, part of Saint Vincent College, will once again host its annual Kindness Campaign to honor the legacy of Fred Rogers. In partnership with the Citrone 33 Foundation and Saint Vincent College, the Fred Rogers Institute developed the Kindness Campaign to promote a culture of kindness, empathy and well-being across the SVC campus.
Staff members heard from Dr. Michael Rich, a leader in researching the impacts of media on mental and behavioral health for children and young adults, and learned best practices in educational and youth content from representatives of PBS KIDS and Fred Rogers Productions.
The 22nd annual Prostate Cancer Foundation Gala raised millions toward cancer research this summer.

Citrone33 aims to identify, develop and support methods to deliver mental-wellness
skills that are practical and accessible. We strive to personalize those everyday skillsto speak to the needs of the communities we serve. Each of us, regardless of age, race, gender, or faith, is entitled to mental well-being that is supported and respected by others. By completing the 33 Day Gratitude & Greatness Challenge, your team will be learning how to focus and reflect on their lives off and on the field. From
understanding how to navigate stressful situations, creating healthy habits, reflecting on the small moments of joy in our lives, and learning how to grow through adversity, your students will find that spending a few minutes each day will have a huge impact.
As Coaches, your team will be looking to you for guidance, support, and for a little
push to start the conversation. Spend 5-10 minutes each practice tackling each 33 Day Gratitude & Greatness Challenge; help students to write down their responses,
encourage them to be honest and vulnerable, and share out your own thoughts! Keep it fun and allow the act of practicing gratitude and kindness to mentally prepare your team for a successful practice, championship game, team building activity, or cool
down to recenter themselves after a stressful day on the field. As a team you will all learn that being mentally strong is just as important as being physically strong! Are you ready for the challenge?
