Green Shirt Day
Green Shirt Day for Organ Donor Awareness and Registration
On April 6, 2018, Canadians were heartbroken to hear the news of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash. Of the 29 passengers, sixteen lost their lives and thirteen will all bear physical and emotional scars for life, including Olds’ Graysen Cameron.
The day following the crash, Logan Boulet – a 21-year-old defenseman with the team – succumbed to his injuries. Logan had informed his family that he wished to be an organ donor. His decision to do so saved 6 other lives, and inspired a nation to register as organ and tissue donors. This massive increase in donor registrations has become known as the Logan Boulet Effect.
To honour Logan’s memory, we ask the community to join the movement.
