The Saskatchewan Roughriders will be paying a season-long tribute to the 16 people who lost their lives in the Humboldt bus tragedy.
You're going to see #HumboldtStrong on the back of the Riders' helmets all season. Riders CEO Craig Reynolds will be on @GreenZoneSK at 3:35 to talk about it and the practice day they're holding in Humboldt next weekend. pic.twitter.com/G6zIeBkdPe

The Riders are holding a practice and community event in Humboldt on June 3 in support of a community still coping with a devastating bus accident that took place on April 6.
The team will also hold a ‘Humboldt Strong’ home game slated for June 30 against the Montreal Alouettes in Week 3.
A bus carrying players, coaches, support staff and broadcasters with the Humboldt Broncos hockey team collided with a tractor-trailer as the team was on their way to a SJHL playoff game in northeastern Saskatchewan on April 6.
RCMP have said the truck was in an intersection at the time of the crash and the investigation is continuing.
