CINCINNATI (WKRC) - It's been two weeks since the devastating crash in Canada that left 16 people dead when a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey team collided with a truck.

A GoFundMe page was set up with an initial goal of raising $5,000.

Just 14 days later, it's now become the second largest GoFundMe campaign globally, raising more than 15 million dollars. The money raised going to a newly formed nonprofit, the Humboldt Memorial Fund Inc.

The University of Cincinnati and Xavier club hockey teams showing their support, Friday night hosting a Crosstown Shootout benefiting the Humboldt community at SportsPlus.

Both the UC and Xavier club seasons ending over a month ago, so when they decided to do something to help it was a scramble to put it together.

With help from area businesses and the hockey community, they were able to get it done in two weeks and hold the successful event.
