Lethbridge School Division recognizes Green Shirt Day

Lethbridge School Division marked March 31, 2021, as Green Shirt Day.
Green Shirt Day was created in honour of the Logan Boulet Effect, in support of organ donor awareness/registration across Canada.
On April 6, 2018, Canadians were heartbroken to hear the news of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Of the 29 passengers, 16 lost their lives and 13 will all bear physical and emotional scars for life.
On April 7, 2018, Humboldt Broncos defenceman Logan Boulet succumbed to his injuries. His parents, Bernadine and Toby Boulet, offered to donate his organs so that six lives could live on. They did so because Logan told his parents he was registering as an organ donor and that he was inspired by his coach and mentor Ric Suggitt. Ric passed on June 27, 2017 and was also an organ donor and saved 6 lives.
What happened following this selfless act is nothing less than miraculous and became known across Canada as the “Logan Boulet Effect."
Staff and students at Gilbert Paterson Middle School put together a video for Green Shirt Day, which includes a message from Bernadine and Toby Boulet. The video can be see here: PATERSON.
Winston Churchill High School students also interviewed Toby Boulet about his son, Logan Boulet, and Green Shirt Day. The interview can be seen here: WCHS.
