Edison Park school raises money for Humboldt Broncos' families

Edison Park school raises money for Humboldt Broncos' families

People and organizations around Salmon Arm, Canada and overseas showed their support across social media today in honour of those who died in the Broncos' bus crash.

A show of support from hockey fans stretches far beyond the small Canadian community of Humboldt, which was shaken just days ago by a horrific auto crash that killed 15, including members of its youth hockey team the Humboldt Broncos.

Balkovec said the tragedy has sparked an outpouring of support across the country, in part because long bus rides are so much a part of Canadian kids' experience playing hockey and other sports.

"We wish to express our deepest sympathies for the players, families of the players and support staff that have endured the recent nightmare in Saskatchewan", Ahearn added. "As hockey families we are here for you!" reads the Facebook page created for the event.

The local oldtimers have shown their respect in a number of ways, though donations, wearing their jerseys, leaving sticks outside and using green tape during the ongoing playoffs.

The symbolic gesture has picked up steam and now people from around the world are sharing photos of their jerseys on social media under the hashtag #jerseysforhumboldt.

Tyler Bieber will be the first victim of the crash to be laid to rest at the Elgar Petersen Arena where the Broncos played their home games.

Following that is the campaign for the Las Vegas Victims Fund, which raised $11.8 million, and the Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund, which raised $6.7 million.
