BENEFITING: KATIE MOORE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2014
I've always admired people who are able to raise awareness and contribute to causes greater than themselves. After seeing NHL player (NY Rangers) Dominic Moore nominated for the Bill Masterson Memorial Trophy I did some research on his story and was completely blown away at what he has been through and since accomplished in honor of his wife. I am inspired by both Katie and Dominic Moore's courage and strength. I think using my birthday as a way to raise awareness and contribute to their cause would be the best way to celebrate turning 24! I hope to hit my goal of $1,500 and donate to the Katie Moore Foundation by my 24th birthday - July 26, 2014. ANY contribution - however large or small - is a contribution to a cause that is greater than all of us and words cannot express how thankful I am to each of you. Please spread the word and share with friends, family, and fans alike. (Dominic has played professionally for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Minnesota Wild, Toronto Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres, Florida Panthers, Montreal Canadiens, Tampa Bay Lightning, San Jose Sharks, and has just ended the recent season with the New York Rangers.) No matter what team you root for, this story is inspiring and deserves to be heard. I would love nothing more than to hit my goal by my birthday!
