Students at Thomas Haney wore their hockey jerseys on Thursday in support of the Humboldt Broncos.

Students at Thomas Haney secondary have raised more than $1,200 for the Humboldt Broncos, the hockey team involved in a horrific crash in Saskatchewan last week.

Many also arrived at school Thursday morning wearing jerseys of different team colours to show their support for all those involved.

People across Canada, the United States and in countries around the world did the same for the Jersey Day event that was started by a pair of B.C. hockey moms from Langley.

The Broncos were travelling to a play-off game when their bus was involved in an accident with a semi-trailer. Sixteen people on the bus were killed including players, a coach, an athletic therapist, and a play-by-play announcer.

Tyler Bieber will be the first victim of the crash to be laid to rest at the Elgar Petersen Arena where the Broncos played their home games. He was only in his first year as a play-by-play announcer for the Broncos.

The funerals of Jacob Leicht, a left-winger, and Adam Herold, who would have turned 17 today, will be held on Friday.

Thirteen others were injured in the crash.

On Monday people across Canada left hockey sticks on the front porches in honour of the team.

A GoFundMe campaign has already raised more than $9 million.
