Patrick Burke has launched the “You Can Play Project“. After losing his brother Brendan, an openly gay athlete two years ago; Burke has made it his mission to bring awareness and acceptance of gay athletes into the sports world. During the Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers game on Sunday March 4th, 8 NHL Stars will appear in the launch video airing on NBC.
Burke is a good friend of mine and his passion for the project was brought to my attention when I briefly helped with the video filming a few months ago! Click the link below to read more about the video launch and to listen to an interview Burke had with John Buccigross earlier this week.
