WEAR AN ORANGE SHIRT!

Orange Shirt Day is an initiative where participants wear an orange shirt to commemorate the generations of children who attended the Indian Residential Schools.

The initiative is an opportunity for healing through Truth and Reconciliation. Orange Shirt Day is recognized annually on September 30th.

Small actions can make a big difference. In the spirit of reconciliation and to recognize Orange Shirt Day, athletes are encouraged to wear an orange shirt during the Rainforest Trail Run.
