Pink Shirt Day is Feb. 28

Join Sask Sport and other organizations across the country on Feb. 28 to unite in kindness and inclusion on Pink Shirt Day.

Pink Shirt Day is recognized nation-wide as anti-bullying day. Originating in 2007, David Shepherd and Travis Price — a pair of Grade 12 students in Berwick, Nova Scotia — handed out 50 pink shirts to support a Grade 9 student who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.

Sask Sport believes that sport should be healthy, safe, fun and welcoming for all participants. To join us in making a difference, purchase your at-cost Sport. It’s More Than A Game. pink t-shirt for $6. Adult and youth sizes are available.  

Sask Sport employees will wear pink shirts on Feb. 28 and we invite the amateur sport community to do the same –  whether it be in classrooms, workplaces or anywhere in between.
