Our Community and especially parents need to speak up and show support for the New Hanover County School Board to change their decision against not allowing Dane Britt & his team to volunteer & give Inspiration to the children through the "Get Fit With Dane Britt" campaign unless he meets their criteria! He is a local, a business man & most importantly a role model for our Children to look up to!!!! 

From Dane Britt: I have performed inspirational stunt and music shows at schools up and down the East coast for over 10 years now. I, and my teammates put on these shows FREE OF CHARGE TO THE SCHOOLS, with messages of not bullying, following your dreams, crushing goals, and being a healthy person, mentally, and physically. The funds for these free shows are raised by donations, and fundraisers from my local firearms business. Recently New Hanover County Schools saw my videos on my business page, and I was told I could not have any videos or pictures on my social media because they didn't want people to think "NHCS supports guns". Shortly after I raised my concerns about descriminating against me for my line of work, (which funds the shows) it changed to "well we need you to have the proper insurances." They proceeded to get in touch with any school that I had booked for the "Get Fit With Dane Britt" campaign and make them cancel the shows they had already told the kids were coming up. The list of demands from NHCS also included me having to get a waiver signed by every child in attendance's parents, some sort of solid barrier between us and the kids, and absolutely no high fiving or direct interaction with the kids before, during, or after the show, among other things I agreed to... The insurances I will need for NHCS Board to approve me performing at the schools would include:
-A One Million Dollar Liability policy for each show, seperately.
-Worker's comp coverage held by me for any person on my team that will be performing.
-2 Million Dollars in auto coverage policy for each vehicle used, or 1 million in auto and 1 million in an umberella policy for each vehicle used.
All insurance policies and coverages will need to be approved by NHCS board before I am allowed to proceed with any school.
Keep in mind, the majority of our shows at the schools I am riding a child's sized dirtbike to minimize risk. Stunts are all watered down for the same purpose. Safety has always been the number one concern.
At what point do I throw my hands up and say that this county I live in and try to give back to really doesn't want this for the kids? WHO ARE THEY HURTING BY TAKING THESE SHOWS OUT OF THE SCHOOLS? I am still pursuing these insurances, but it's become pretty obvious that rather than helping me figure out ways to keep these shows happening, they want to make it such an inconvenience I will throw in the towel. For now, we stay busy with events outside of New Hanover County School System, but I urge you parents to SPEAK UP about good things that are being taken away from your kids! YOU HAVE THE POWER, AND THIS IS YOUR SCHOOL SYSTEM!!! They work for you, you DO NOT WORK FOR THEM!!!! 

Please feel free to reach out and contact Dane Britt if you would like to contribute and help him achieve the criteria they have set forth for him to be able to volunteer in New Hanover County Schools again!
