by Bill Meltzer @billmeltzer / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

Three-stint Flyers goaltender Ray Emery passed away on Sunday morning. According to official reports, the 35-year-old drowned in Hamilton Harbour during a swimming outing with friends at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club in Hamilton, Ontario.

"The Philadelphia Flyers are stunned and extremely saddened to hear of the tragic passing of former Flyers goaltender Ray Emery. Ray was an outstanding teammate and an extremely gifted goaltender," said Flyers president Paul Holmgren.

"He had exceptional athleticism, was a fierce competitor and battled in every game he played with the Flyers. His performances through the 2009-10 season were a very big part of the team's success in making the playoffs and reaching the Stanley Cup Final. Ray's talent, work ethic and determination helped him enjoy a successful 11-year NHL career. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this difficult time."

The Making of a (Charity) Classic

A look at the steps taken that shaped what the large-scale event has become today

by Bill Meltzer @billmeltzer / http://www.philadelphiaflyers.com

Join us tomorrow for the seccond annual Toyota Flyers Charity Classic! Walk up regitration is available. More information HERE.

The 2018 Toyota Flyers Charity Classic is a city-wide event incorporating a 5k walk/run through the Philadelphia Navy Yard, a 10-mile family bike ride through the Navy Yard and FDR Park, and two bike rides - a 50K and a 100K - spanning the sights and sounds of Broad Street, through historic Valley Forge Park leading back through MLK Drive to the Wells Fargo Center Complex. 

This year marks the second annual edition of the summertime event in which thousands of participants bicycle, run or walk to raise money for worthy causes in the Delaware Valley. The Toyota Flyers Charity Classic grew out of the Flyers Charities 5k run/walk, which proved very popular over a five-year period.

In 2016, Brad Marsh, the Flyers' director of community development and president of the Flyers Alumni Association had an idea for the Flyers to add a bicycling event to the organization's charitable fundraisers. An avid cyclist who once bicycled coast-to-coast across Canada to raise funds for Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. In the 1980s, during his playing days as a Flyers defenseman, he used to participate in off-season triathalons.

In developing the concept for what became the Charity Classic, various ideas were discussed along with Flyers Charities.
