CFYHA Responds to Humboldt Broncos Tragedy

By Admin, 04/09/18, 11:00PM EDT


Dear Cape Fear –
It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the tragic loss of the 10 players, Head Coach and staff of Humboldt Broncos Juniors Team. It is unfathomable the pain and grief that these parents and their community are feeling.  Please pray for the injured and survivors, as their pain is only beginning.  The Board will be donating $150 on behalf of the organization to the GoFundMe. We Remember Broncos helmet stickers are also being made for our Travel Teams next season.  If you feel that your family is called to donate, I have provided the link below.
We run the roads as travel parents, getting our kids to the rink each weekend.  And maybe somewhere in the very back of our mind we worry about the actual trip?  These young men were the very best that Hockey has to offer, full of promise and doing what they loved; striving to get that D1 scholarship or a trip straight to the NHL.  No one imagines such promise could be cut short.  But, the Hockey Gods have 10 Angels now, dressed in Green and Gold.  May they watch out for our boys and girls and be a reminder to always give back to the sport that has given us so much.
Hug your player extra tight tonight.
All the Best in Hockey and Life,
