I feel proud to be participating in the 2nd annual Laurie Harris Hope and Dreams 5K, an event that supports the fight against the deadly disease of pancreatic cancer. This event honors my late New York Flyers teammate, Laurie Harris, a longtime runner who fought valiantly against this disease before she passed away in November, 2013. Laurie's courageous spirit was - and still is - an inspiration to us all, as she continued to run races - gracing the course with her brilliant smile - even in the face of her illness. It is my fervent hope that we can find a cure for this horrible disease so that, in the future, people like Laurie can go on to lead full, happy, and healthy lives. If you can, I would greatly appreciate any donations you can give to this worthy cause.
