Abbey Lane Students Learn to be MACHO
March 21, 2017

Abbey Lane Students Learn to be MACHO 001Abbey Lane students are challenging the stereotype of being "macho." During an assembly with MACHO Man Foundation founder Cary Epstein, the students learned that MACHO is an acronym, which spelled out, means my actions can help others.

Epstein appealed to the students through his references to superheroes and inferred that everyone can be one of these characters with super human powers through the use of compassion, empathy and kindness toward others. "You can be a superhero if you use your heart and be kind to others," he told the students.

The students pledged to take the MACHO Challenge, which requires the school to collectively document more than 500 acts of kindness over a ten-day period.
