Great initiative from the Florida Panthers who created a virtual fundraising run to raise money for the Florida Panthers Foundation’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
Runners tracked their efforts online, donated $10 and shared their success online. This raised money, spread the word and encouraged some responsible fitness activity by fans.
Former players like Shawn Thornton were active participants and helped drive the effort online as well.
