Boston Bruins Beard-A-Thon

Grow One For Boston for a Worthy Cause & Chances to Win

The 2016-17 Playoff run for the Boston Bruins has concluded. Check back next season for ways to participate in Beard-A-thon.

This playoff season the Bruins helped raise money for the Boston Bruins Foundation & The John Martin Fund. Click below to learn more about Beard-A-Thon and how to get involved all year around.

John Martin, a longtime videographer at NESN, was suddenly forced to retire after being diagnosed with ALS. Over his 19 years at NESN, he covered both the Red Sox and Bruins where he was able to see historic moments such as the Red Sox winning the 2004 World Series and the Boston Bruins winning the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals in dramatic fashion. ALS is a neurodegenerative disorder disease that ultimately ruins your body's ability to move. John has maintained a positive outlook throughout this experience and is determined to fight ALS until the end. Proceeds raised through Beard-A-Thon will be donated to The John Martin fund to help him and his family.
