According to CTV Calgary News, the city of Lethbridge will once again be marking the annual Green Shirt Day on April 7. The Green Shirt Day is an annual event done in honor of the Logan Boulet Effect, in support of organ donor awareness and registration across Canada.
On April 6, 2018, the Humboldt Broncos bus crash happened, claiming the lives of sixteen passengers with 13 left injured. Logan Boulet who was the Humboldt Broncos defence man, was on the bus and he died on April 7, 2018.
Before his death, Logan made the decision to donate his organs to save the lives of six people and this became the ‘Logan Boulet Effect’ across Canada. The Green Shirt Day was launched by the Boulet family to create awareness for organ transplants.
“Logan decision to be an organ donor because he wanted to save lives,” Logan’s father and co-founder of Green Short Day, Toby Boulet told CTV Calgary News. “He knew that his organs would be healthy whenever he passed and he wanted to make sure someone else got those.”
Buildings and structures across Canada, including the high level bridge and Lethbridge city hall, will light up green on April 7, according to CTV Calgary News. The Boulets will be hosting a free skate at Logan Boulet Arena in north Lethbridge on Green Shirt Day.
