The Saskatchewan Roughriders will spend one day of their 2018 training camp in Humboldt.
The team announced on Thursday it will hold a walk-through practice at Glenn Hall Park in Humboldt on June 3 as well as hosting a barbecue lunch from noon until 1.
“While we continue to mourn for all those effected by the devastating event of April 6th, we want to demonstrate our ongoing support for the Broncos organization and the community of Humboldt,” stated Craig Reynolds, Saskatchewan Roughriders President & CEO. “We have been working in partnership with the Broncos’ organization since the tragedy, hoping to play a small role in assisting the team, victims, the community and entire province through this painful time by channeling the healing power of sport, and by lending the strength of Rider Nation.”
On June 3, the team will also release details regarding a Humboldt Strong home game on June 30. That game against Montreal has been dedicated to the families and victims of the April 6th tragedy where 16 were killed with another 13 injured when the bus they were in was hit by a tractor-trailer unit at an intersection while on their way to a playoff game in Nipawin.
