VANCOUVER GIANTS HOST 'ACCEPTANCE' FLASH MOBJan 24, 2013 - 08:51 MST
VANCOUVER, BC - The Vancouver Giants partnered with several schools throughout the Lower Mainland and hosted an Acceptance Flash Mob in honour of Anti-Bullying Day. The flash mob happened during the second period in the game against the Everett Silvertips Sunday night.
There were just under 2,000 school children, from the various elementary and secondary schools, who took part in the choreographed number, unveiling pink shirts as a part of their routine.
Anti-Bullying Day, also known as Pink Shirt Day, takes place on the last Wednesday of February. This year's Anti-Bullying Day will take place on Wednesday February 27, 2013 and all participants of Anti-Bullying Day are encouraged to wear pink, which symbolizes a stand against bullying.
The Vancouver Giants would like to thank all those involved for their hard work in helping support acceptance and spreading awareness against bullying.
