It was a sea of pink children, adults and politicians as they rallied against bullying.
People celebrated Pink Shirt Day across Canada on Wednesday (Feb.28).
The Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club held a rally with more than 100 kids, adults, RCMP members and politicians walking from the club to the Station Square Co-op.
"We've been involved for the past eight or nine years in partnership with our Co-op store and really it's just an opportunity for us as a community to come together and wear our pink shirt and bring awareness and promote kindness," said Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club executive director Wendy Serink.
The walk took approximately 23 minutes and then everyone gathered inside the Co-op for treats and surprises.
One surprise came in the shape of a $5,500 cheque from the Co-op, to the boys and girls club.
Pink Shirt Day was inspired by a random act of kindness by two students towards a schoolmate being bullied in Nova Scotia back in 2007. Now pink shirts are worn across Canada each year.
