On Sunday, September 14 for the third year, New York Rangers joined forces to support the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
|Defenseman Wade Redden took hardly any time to immerse himself in the New York community. |
Nineteen Rangers' representatives were in attendance raising money for a great cause and showing their Rangers spirit. The group included newcomers Lotta Naslund and Danica Redden, wives of Rangers forward Markus Naslund and defenseman Wade Redden
. Wade personally made an appearance with his wife, stating that "it is important to give back and this is a great cause."
Rangers Executives and coaches wives were once again on hand to continue the annual tradition, including Ann Sather, Theresa Schoenfeld, Kim Pelino and Lyne Chalut-Allaire.
"Being a part of this event each year is important for the Rangers, it is a simple way to give back to the community, while helping a worthy cause," says Ann Sather.
Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the world's largest and most well known grassroots network of survivors and activists. It continues to hold the honor of being the only organization fighting to cure breast cancer at every stage. This year's team of participants, known as the Rangers Roadies, raised almost $2,000 for the organization.
