Today, millions around the world participate each year in pink days to stand up and speak out against bullying in schools, workplaces and communities.
Earlier this month, a flash mob of students from the surrounding BC Lower Mainland area broke out at the Vancouver Giants’ Family Day game at the Pacific Coliseum.

More than 2,800 students dressed in pink t-shirts, stood up in their seats during an extended time-out in the second period. Dancing to the tune of “Shooting Star” by Owl City, the lights in the arena dimmed as the students waved little lights.

The flash mob is part of an annual anti-bully campaign in British Columbia.

She was hooked after the first shot off her aluminum Gretzky hockey stick at 13 years old. Growing up playing competitive hockey in Vancouver, British Columbia has inspired her to coach in addition to playing. She is currently the Vice President and Assistant Coach of her alma mater Simon Fraser University for the women's ice hockey club. Upon graduating with a BBA, she has found a way combine her love of sports, mainly hockey, with her career. She has worked with the BC Lions and still works for the Canucks for Kids Fund on game days coordinating one the best 50/50 programs in the NHL. In a nutshell - Ovechkin over Crosby, Vancouver Canucks are my #1, New York Rangers are my #2...and she bakes cakes (the Cake Boss type).
