At one point or another in our lives, we’ve all either been a victim of bullying, or been a bully our-self.
Wednesday at the University of Regina, students gathered from schools around the city to rally against bullying, and support the upcoming Red Cross Pink Day on Wednesday February 22.
Pink Day Co-Founder Travis Price was also in attendance.
Price said he never imagined the day would now be something celebrated across Canada when he helped start it in 2007.
“Never for a second, I look in this room today and you see all these kids that are so excited to be part of a cause that you started so many years ago, I think it’s just incredible, it’s motivating and also encouraging for me,” Price said.
Price said a main message that needs to continue to be promoted is the idea that everyday can be Pink Day, and putting a stop to and raising awareness about bullying is something that should be done everyday.
In 2007, Price and friend David Sheppard wore pink shirts to their high school in Nova Scotia after witnessing a grade nine boy being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school himself, a day earlier.
