On April 6, the Humboldt youth hockey bus was traveling to a playoff game when it collided with a semi in Saskatchewan. Her 16-year-old son plays with the Langley Minor Hockey Association, and she told CTV Vancouver that all hockey families immediately felt the pain in Humboldt. It's any hockey player's dream to see the Stanley Cup up close and personal like that! "They're closer to the kids on the hockey team than they probably are a lot of kids they go to school with".

As Canadians continued to grieve the tragic bus crash in Saskatchewan, a GoFundMe account was opened and the outpouring of support from people around the world was unbelievable.

T-shirts with the hashtag #SaskStrong were on sale near the entrance with $5 from the funds being donated to the Broncos. She says by coming together and encouraging everyone to wear any kind of sports jersey, she hopes to show the affected families that they are not alone.
