Suman and Manjit Virk, who have worked tirelessly against bullying since their daughter, Reena, 14, was murdered 12 years ago, have been awarded B.C.’s highest honour for community safety and crime prevention.

Solicitor General Cash Heed presented the Virks with the Anthony J. Hulme Award of Distinction on Monday.

Since the death of Reena in 1997, the Virks have spoken many times in schools and at community events in an effort to prevent others from becoming the victims of bullying and violence.

“With amazing strength that inspired many, the Virks turned their personal tragedy into an opportunity to help others,” Heed said.

“Despite their heartache, they chose to do everything they could to ensure that no other family or child would suffer the horrible consequences of bullying.” Full story.
