Communities across Canada showed their support Wednesday for Pink Shirt Day, a day to stand up against Bullying.

It was a sea of Pink throughout the Heartland, including the City of Fort Saskatchewan.  Despite the cool weather, hundreds of youth and adults marched from the Boys and Girls club to the CO-OP parking lot to rally against Bullying.



Executive Director of the Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club, Wendy Serink, recapped the day.

A total of $6500 was also donated to the Boys and Girls club from Serenity Funeral Services and Station Square CO-OP.  The money will help support the partnership with Restorative Practices to provide support for those that are victim of Bullying.

Don Lehman, Program Coordinator with Restorative Practices, explains the community initiative.
