ABOUT THE HUDDLE UP BULLYING PREVENTION PROGRAMpresented by TIM HORTONS

The Huddle Up Bullying Prevention Program, presented by Tim Hortons, has reached over 600,000 students with messages to prevent bullying. In now it’s 18th year, the program has continued to address the issues surrounding bullying while adding a focus on improving the well-being of students in GTA schools. Argos players, staff, and cheerleaders share personal stories that encourage, embrace and celebrate diversity and inclusion with the goal of helping inspire students to build positive character, self-awareness and a positive sense of belonging.

ABOUT PINK SHIRT DAY

“Pink Shirt Day” is a North American-wide movement that works to mobilize students and adults to wear pink in a show of solidarity for bullying prevention efforts. Travis Price, then a grade 12 student in Nova Scotia, stood up for a grade 9 student who was targeted and bullied for wearing a pink t-shirt on his first day of school. Price and his classmate David Shepherd decided to purchase 50 pink shirts to wear to school the next day. When other classmates joined in, they realized that bullying only has power if no one stands up against it, and so a movement was born. Millions of people across the continent now take part in Pink Shirt Day annually.
