Pittsburgh Penguins help raise funds for families of Lokomotiv plane crash victims



Big Dreams Children's Foundation could not ignore one of the biggest tragedies in the history of professional sports, when on September 7th, 2011 the airplane carrying the Lokomotiv hockey team to it's first game of the season crashed shortly after take off. The tragedy took the lives of 44 out of 45 people aboard. Both Russia and the world of hockey were left stunned by the deaths of so many international stars in one catastrophic event.

Most of them were left with young children and loss of income stream. They still need the help and support and with your donation we can continue to help them.
