Last Sunday was no ordinary day for the Bikes against Bullies organization. It was the third annual Bikes against Bullies event, where people throughout the lower mainland came together to spread anti-bullying awareness. This event is held in the memory of Amanda Todd, aka Princess Snowflake, who is a dear friend of the organizers of the Bikes against Bullies rally. For those who don’t know Amanda Todd, she was a young girl from Port Coquitlam, who at the age of 15 committed suicide due to cyberbullying.  Prior to her death, Amanda had posted a video on YouTube where she used a series of flash cards to tell her experience of being blackmailed, bullied, and physically assaulted. “The 2012 death of Amanda Todd drew international outrage over the devastating effects of cyberbullying and online exploitation after the British Columbia teen took her own life following years of verbal abuse, bullying and blackmail at the hands of online tormentors.”

The Bikes against Bullies rally is an inspirational way to pay respect to Amanda Todd and continue to shed light on those who are affected by all forms of bullying. This bike rally took place from Trev Deeley Motorcycles in Vancouver, and continued to Ruby Creek Art Gallery in Agassiz. Not only was there a BBQ for this family friendly event, but also performances, speeches, and a silent auction to raise funds for the not for profit Amanda Todd Legacy Society and Amanda Todd’s Legacy/Memorial Fund.

Pink Shirt Day is proud to spread awareness about this amazing cause! Be sure to check out the video below showcasing highlights from last Sunday’s Bikes against Bullies event.
