HUMBOLDT BRONCOS MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT
MOTORCYCLE RAFFLE OVERVIEW
On April 6, 2018, the world stopped for 29 families and the City of Humboldt, Saskatchewan. The 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos Junior “A” Hockey Club was involved in a tragic collision on their way to a playoff game against the Nipawin Hawks when the bus they were travelling in collided with a semi-trailer truck at the intersection of Highways 35 and 335, north of Tisdale, Saskatchewan. The collision resulted in the tragic loss of 16 lives and will have an everlasting traumatic effect on the 13 young lives of those who survived. Thousands of people around the world could relate to the tragedy. To this day, we continue to witness compassion, resilience, and strength in magnitudes that we could not have imagined.
The world grieved and the loss has been profound, yet there is common sentiment among the Broncos families: something positive must come from this tragedy.
On April 5, 2021, the Humboldt Broncos Memorials Committee, comprised of members of the 2017-2018 Humboldt Broncos families, Humboldt Broncos Board members, Humboldt Public Art committee members, together with the City of Humboldt, unveiled an extraordinary vision for a Humboldt Broncos Tribute Centre and Roadside Memorial to pay tribute and honour the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos, and to inspire those who are on their own healing journey.
The “Broncos Tribute Centre Campaign” has been launched to engage philanthropic, corporate, government, construction partners, and the public who are inspired to contribute and bring this extraordinary project from concept to reality.
As a symbol of Canadian Junior Hockey, the Broncos Tribute Centre will seek to recognize other junior programs from across the country and highlight acts of local community service, perseverance, and resiliency. The Centre will aspire to make an impression and inspire visitors, sports teams, coaches, athletes, and parents from across the country by promoting the values spelled out in former coach Darcy Haugan’s Core Covenant, which continues to influence sports leaders across North America.
IN THEIR HONOUR
The word “honour” holds a profound weight that can sometimes feel unattainable, especially in a world where grand gestures are marked by media coverage and trending hashtags. In late 2018, the Humboldt Broncos Memorials Committee set out on a mission to change that and honour the lives lost and forever changed, and make a generational impact on Junior Hockey and community sports in Humboldt, towns across Canada and beyond. Through this process, themes of perseverance, resiliency, inspiration, community spirit and national unity emerged. The ambition for the proposed Broncos Tribute Centre is to symbolize these qualities, celebrate the lives lost and changed, and highlight the role that hockey and other team sports play in developing character and integrity, while creating a sense of belonging and community values.
THE TRIBUTE CENTRE
The Tribute Centre will honour and celebrate the lives lost and impacted. Shaped by Coach Darcy Haugan’s Core Covenant, it will become a national symbol for community values and spirit that will demonstrate what hockey means to our communities and the positive benefits that come from participation in sports, including character development and leadership skills.
THE ROADSIDE MEMORIAL
At the site of the tragedy, the intersection of Highways 35 and 335 will be transformed into a tranquil place for visitors to pay their respects and reflect on the inspiration and resiliency that has risen from that fateful day. Family representatives are working with the Ministry of Transportation and other Crown Corporations to ensure the site is safely configured while respectfully preserving the meaning of what will become a permanent memorial site.
Like the many initiatives and movements that have been created in honour of the 2017-18 Humboldt Broncos by their friends and families, the Tribute Centre and roadside memorials will serve as everlasting monuments for generations. Some feel the best way to honour and remember someone is to keep retelling their story, and that is what the Memorials Committee intends to do.
PURPOSE OF THIS RAFFLE
The Humboldt Broncos Memorial Golf Tournament Committee thrives to support initiatives that will honour and pay tribute to those who lost their lives, and to those whose lives have been changed forever. The purpose of raffling this custom “Broncos Memorial Motorcycle” is to bring awareness and to support the Tribute Campaign. All proceeds will be donated to the “Broncos Tribute Centre Campaign”.
