A few local schools are honouring the passing of Noah Dugas, which happened one year ago on November 13, 2020. 

An unexpected brain bleed took Noah Dugas’ life on that sad day. The well known young hockey player's final gift was enriching seven lives through organ donation. 

Back in October, both the North Bay Minor Hockey and North Bay AAA Trappers hockey associations retired Noah's #71 jersey number.

At St. Joseph-Scollard Hall they will be hosting a Noah Dugas day to raise money for the Noah Strong Foundation. Students are asked to wear their favourite jersey and casual bottoms while bringing a $2 donation.  

Meantime, at Chippewa Secondary School, staff and students are being asked to participate in the Noah Strong Ambassador Pledge Day on Friday. 

"Noah left an incredible mark on the world by showing strength, compassion, and resiliency," a Chippewa social media post stated Monday. 

"The NoahStrong organization honours Noah’s legacy by supporting youth, families, and communities through the promotion, facilitation, and celebration of acts of kindness, selflessness, and resiliency.

"We are encouraging our Chippewa family to wear their favourite jersey on Friday to help remember Noah and his contributions. Classes will be collecting donations to the NoahStrong charity in class. Please donate what you can, if you can."
