Six-thousand school-aged children were absent from their classes Wednesday to participate in an acceptance flash mob during the Vancouver Giants game.
Every year, the Giants partner with schools from around the Lower Mainland to host the flash mob in recognition of Anti-Bullying Day on Feb. 24.
“The Giants as an organization are proud to be able to provide this fun afternoon that brings the serious message of acceptance to light,” said Giants vice president, business development Dale Saip. “The choreographed dance combines a great visual spectacle with an important message, and we’re excited to be a part of it for a fourth straight year.”
The afternoon was featured a performance from Dan Caro, a drummer who was engulfed in a fireball at age two after a gasoline explosion in his family garage. Also on hand was author Brandee Buble, who read from her new children’s book Jayde the Jay Bird.
Global BC’s Jay Janower served as MC of the event.
