Young Girls Can Learn Self Defense with Help from Rotary, Hospital

The girls ages 11 and older will take part in the "Just Yell Fire" program.

Girls ages 11 and older can participate in a self-defense class on April 20 sponsored by the Rotary Club of Alpharetta and North Fulton Hospital.

The self-defense class will be held on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m-12:30 p.m. at North Fulton Hospital. The class is available to friends and family of Rotary members and anyone interested in attending at a cost of $35 per girl.

The Rotary Club of Alpharetta will sponsor Interact Club students wishing to participate.

The single-session training course will be presented by Revved Up Kids. The girls will be taught using the award-winning “Just Yell Fire” program.

Participants will be lead through a frank and informative discussion about taking ownership of their personal safety. Girls are not required to be chaperoned for this event, but there is a lot of valuable information that pertains to women of all ages and moms are welcome to attend at no charge.

“We are so proud of our Alpharetta Rotary Club for taking a pro-active role to address this important issue and help our young women protect themselves with training,” said Bill Weeks, president of the Rotary Club of Alpharetta.

The Rotary Club of Alpharetta was chartered on March 23, 1983. Its membership is comprised of approximately 85 men and women representing a broad base of business and professional activities in our community.
