If you are unable to attend the Festival, your donation will go to supporting the Argos Huddle Up program which helps to minimize bullying in our community and schools. The school programs run for one full year with guidance from the Foundation to create focus groups, postitive promotions, awareness assemblies, and support for those in need.  Furthermore a legacy is created for future students.

 

 Our event has supported the Argos Foundation Huddle up program at several schools including;

Markham District High School and Greensborough Public School

Assemblies are led by student representatives who then gather with other representatives from other schools to share ideas about how to minimize bullying in their schools. In 2012 close to 30 000 students from across Ontario attended an Argos game as part of the program and another team building event. All of the funds you dontate go towards these initiatives.

 

“The powerful and very personal message from the Toronto Argonauts players left our students talking about how hurtful bullying can be... Great role models with a great message!” - Elementary Teacher

 

 “I hope nobody becomes a bully. Today I learned to not bully people, and to show people how to be a friend.” - Grade 3 Student

 

 “I just wanted to thank you for coming to my school today and sharing your point of view on bullying... you coming to our school will make a difference now and in the years to come!” - High School Student

Here is a sample poster that hangs in the entrance of one of the schools our Festival supported.
