TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WTXL) -- The national Man Up Against Bullying Tour made its way to Tallahassee on Saturday. 

It's a chance for kids and their parents to come together, and talk about ways to put an end to bullying. 

The event included tools for self-esteem building and other advice, like the importance of building healthy relationships at young age.

"We keep doing this because as long as there's bullying and there are kids being bullied. Until the suicide rate decreases, there's a cause for this," said Tiffany Love, founder and CEO Man Up Against Bullying. "The energy is epic. If you look around the room... parents coming together, encouraging their young. They're letting their youth know they shouldn't bully."

The Man Up Against Bullying group has reached more than 350,000 people all across the country.
