Ecole Fox Run School showed their support for the Humboldt Broncos by wearing green on April 10.

The whole school has had the Bronco players on their minds since the crash on April 6 and wanted to do something to show their support.

Students and staff were asked to wear green, the Broncos team colors, on April 10. Almost the entire school wore something green on the tenth. A particularly passionate eighth grade student made everyone in grade eight green and gold ribbons to wear on their shirts.

As a reminder of the crash which took the lives of fifteen players and coaches on the bus, a moment of silence was observed after morning announcements, to pause and reflect on the tragedy that has affected so many people.

On April 11 the Fox Run Hockey Academy held a charity student vrs. teacher hockey game. There was a puck toss, where all attendees could buy a two dollar puck to throw onto the ice during the second intermission. All of the proceeds from the puck toss was split between the Humboldt Broncos and the Nick Fountain cause.

The school also held a jersey day on April 12, to show that their thoughts and condolences are with the families and players.

All of the students and staff were affected by the tragedy, whether it was because they are involved in the hockey community, or if they knew a player personally.
