Students from Hort Elementary School in Bakersfield participated in the Great Kindness Challenge on Tuesday. 

The Great Kindness Challenge is a nationwide movement that got underway Monday and lasts through Friday. It aims to create a behavior of kindness from students in elementary, middle and high schools worldwide. The event challenges students to participate in around 50 acts of kindness for one week, according to a press release. 

Students participated in the challenge by creating get well cards with Cal State University Bakersfield athletes. The cards will be distributed to local hospital patients later on in the week.
