Humboldt Broncos GoFundMe reaches $10M, becomes 3rd biggest campaign ever

In the days after the Humboldt Broncos bus tragedy, the team's board said "the power of healing is in the game". Ribchester and fellow Belle River students Maria Kolonelos, behind, and Stewart MacDonald, right, helped raise money to be donated to the GoFundMe campaign for the victims of the fatal Saskatchewan bus crash.

"Partly because we're a big hockey family, and also it has been weighing on us that you hear about so many different tragedies".

David and Nicole D'hondt were watching their son Xavier play during the tournament and were proudly wearing Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs jerseys respectively. Dozens of sports organizations, school boards and local businesses across Canada, the US and even Europe are encouraging their members and students to wear jerseys or green and gold colours on Thursday. She wants to let Humboldt know it is not alone.

"Very tight-knit community, especially the youth hockey in the area", says Chris Beno, President, De Pere Area Youth Hockey. "Those safe travels and those safe trips", she said.
