RENO, Nev. (AP) — A professional rodeo clown who co-founded an anti-bullying program that is used nationwide is hitting the road in Nevada to promote his cause.

Marvin Nash of Cheyenne, Wyo., on Friday began rolling his 130-pound rodeo barrel from Reno to Las Vegas in hopes of completing the 450-mile feat by the Oct. 4 start of an anti-bullying conference in Las Vegas.

Nash says he plans to take a combination of back roads and highways, and roll the barrel about 10 to 12 miles a day. His wife, Darlene, will drive a support vehicle and accompany him on the trek that will mostly be on U.S. 95.

The two educational consultants formed a program called Bullying Hurts, a mentoring program that helps schools, parents and students deal with bullying.
