The Cedar Rapids RoughRiders are doing their part to help the families of the Humboldt Broncos after a tragic crash took the lives of 15 people.

Players from the team will be at the Cedar Rapids, Marion and Hiawatha Culver’s locations from 4-8 pm Wednesday to dine with fans, pose for pictures and sign autographs.

10 percent of food sales will be donated to the Bronco's GoFundMe page, which has already raised more than $5 million as of Monday afternoon.

The bus full of 29 players and coaches was on its way to a playoff game when a truck collided with the bus.
