The family of former Hockey player Logan Boulet were in attendance at Lethbridge City Hall Friday, to help launch the inaugural Green Shirt Day, in memoriam and in honour of their son and all of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash victims and survivors.
Toby and Bernadine Boulet spoke about the vision, support for, and importance of Green Shirt Day, as well as the impact Logan's death had on the organ donation community and on organ donor registration across Canada.
The family said it was their son's wish to donate his organs after he died.
Six people across Canada benefitted from his organs but it also spurred a massive increase in the number of people signing organ donor cards.
The objective of Green Shirt Day, held annually on April 7th, is to honour and remember Logan and his generosity, and to continue to raise awareness for the importance of organ donor registration in Canada.
At 1pm on April 7th, you're asked to take a picture of yourself and any others wearing green and post it on social media with the #GREENSHIRTDAY
Those looking to support the initiative can find more information online.
