The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have partnered with the Canadian Red Cross to deliver their Beyond the Hurt program to schools in Manitoba in 2016. In March, players will visit 10 schools across the province to speak to youth in grades K-8 about how they can foster healthy relationships and create positive school cultures. In addition, the team will participate in Pink Day each year.
School Visits will take place March 12, 13, 14 & 15 2019
If your school would like to host a visit, apply now, and a Winnipeg Blue Bombers player could visit your school to speak with your students about the importance of preventing bullying as well as building empathy and respect. Deadline for applications is March 4th 2019. Selected Schools will be notified March 6th, 2019.

Samantha Mason Friendship Award
Do you know a healthy relationships leader?
The Samantha Mason Friendship Award was created by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in memory of Samantha Mason, who was a victim of bullying at her school in Winnipeg. Nominate a young person who has taken action in her or his school or community to eliminate bullying by embracing the core values of our Canadian Centre for Child Protection/Blue Bombers Kindness Pledge:
- I have the power to make a difference. I will not be a bully or a bystander.
- I can help change the way others are treated in my school, my community and online.
- Everyone is worthy of friendship, support and respect, therefore, I will choose to share kindness and hope instead of hate and hurt.
- I have the power to change the story from hate to hope
If you know a young person who embraces this pledge, nominate him or her today using the form below or download the form here and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Samantha’s story, click here.
