MIAMI – A big show of support at Tuesday night’s Miami Marlins game for a South Florida teenager who was the victim of bullying at school.
Local 10 News first reported on Chad last month after she was roughed up by classmates because she is transgender.
The Marlins rolled out the red carpet for her and her family before Tuesday’s game.
One extremely cool part of Chad’s experience was that she got to paint the Marlins’ “M” on the pitching mound, and she did it in pride colors.
Chad has been honored by the Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins, and she has been receiving loving notes of encouragement thanks to Cards for Chad.
Local 10 News has also joined the movement to help Chad and other students who are experiencing similar challenges.
