The southeast exterior of Investors Group Field will be lit up purple on Saturday to mark World Mental Health Day.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are taking part in the Light Up Purple campaign in support of the Amanda Todd Legacy Project. Landmarks across the world will be illuminated in purple, showing solidarity in de-stigmatizing issues around mental illness.
“We are honoured to have been asked to participate in this incredibly worthwhile campaign by the Amanda Todd Legacy project,” said Wade Miller, president and CEO of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
“By joining the Light Up Purple campaign, Investors Group Field is helping to bring awareness to mental illness and the importance of mental health & wellness.”
The interior of the stadium will be lit up from 6:30 p.m. until 10 p.m.
