Hudson says young individuals will learn to respect authority as well as think before they make dangerous moves and to give more than they can take.

The event will be at Tabernacle Baptist Church, located on 1223 Laney Walker Boulevard in Augusta, Ga, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The event is for students ages 10 to 18 and free of charge for the first 100 registered.
