Cochranites can be seen sporting flamingo, fuchsia, watermelon, and salmon coloured shirts today as the community takes a stand against bullying and celebrates Pink Shirt Day.

Maureen Topp, Manager of Licensed Programs with BGC Cochrane says the day has become something special in Cochrane.

“We get lots of people in the community between organizations and individuals coming to us looking for pink shirts and so we're able to facilitate that. “

“I think really just making sure that our kids and their staff are representing what it's all about and looking at ways we can implement acts of kindness at BGC and in the community.”

Pink Shirt Day started back in 2007 after an incident in Nova Scotia. Since then the movement has continued to grow to include over 110 countries.

“We try to focus our programming on the message behind Pink Shirt Day.” says Topp. “Being one of inclusivity and kindness.” 

“We even have had our staff design some of the shirts that are sold nationally because we have the most talented bunch.”
