The Thompson Local News


More than 200 schools in Manitoba and Nunavut will be taking part in the first Red Cross Pink Day of 2017, which takes place on Tuesday February 22nd.

 

All elementary schools in Thompson are taking part in the event, which highlight the importance of bullying prevention and respectfulness.

 

Schools will be marking the day mainly with assemblies, and everyone is encouraged to wear pink clothing.

 

Provincially, the day will be highlighted by the third annual Canadian Red Cross Pink Day Film Festival, which will showcase videos made by students in Manitoba and Nunavut. The festival is being held in Winnipeg at the Park Theatre.

 

The provincial event starts at 10:30am on Tuesday, and can be live-streamed online at http://bit.ly/2knlw52.

 

The Canadian Red Cross has been the lead organization for Pink Day in the province since 2012 and recently helped bring two Winnipeg Blue Bombers to Thompson to present anti-bullying campaigns.

 

Everyone is encouraged to wear pink on the 22nd, whether you're a student or not, to raise awareness.

 

If you want to purchase an official Canadian Red Cross Pink Day shirt, you can do so online at www.redcross.ca/PinkMB_NU.  

 

The second Pink Day of 2017 will take place on April 12th.
