Students from Parkland, Florida, who flew to Washington for Saturday’s March For Our Lives rally, got a ride from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft this week.

Tweets from the shooting survivors headed to the nation's capitol to lobby for gun law reform showed them with their families boarding the New England Patriots' planes.

The Patriots are the only team in the NFL to have their own planes to travel to and from away games. Kraft reportedly donated the use of the planes to the students so they could get to Washington.

Students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School organized the march in Washington to lobby for stricter gun laws in the wake of a shooting that left 17 dead, including 14 of their fellow students.
