Bruins to Host \"Travis Roy Day\" on Saturday
Boston, MA - The Boston Bruins will host "Travis Roy Day" on Saturday, October 20th during their 4:00 p.m. ET game against the New York Rangers at the TD Banknorth Garden.  Eleven years after his 11-second college hockey shift, Boston University graduate and Yarmouth, Maine native Travis Roy has started "Helping Others Move Forward Campaign" to raise $1.1 million for The Travis Roy Foundation: $100,000 for every second of his last shift on the ice.  The Travis Roy Foundation helps spinal cord injury survivors regain their independence by providing adaptive equipment grants, as well as education and research support. 

The Bruins will support The Travis Roy Foundation by making a donation and encourage all fans attending the game on Saturday to do the same.  Pledge cards will be available throughout the building and various sports memorabilia will be auctioned off.  Additionally, a 50/50 raffle will be conducted to help the Foundation meet its goal.

Roy will be available to the media on Saturday, time and location to be determined.

On October 20, 1995, only 11 seconds into the first shift of his college hockey career at Boston University, Travis' dream of playing Division 1 collegiate hockey was cut cruelly short when he shattered his fourth and fifth cervical vertebra, severely damaging his spinal cord. Travis Roy is now a quadriplegic, with no feeling below his shoulders and movement only in his right arm. With limited control of his right bicep, Travis is able to conduct simple, yet key, tasks such as operating the joystick of his wheelchair.

Travis has faced his disability with the same optimism and determination that distinguished his hockey career. A May 2000 graduate of Boston University with a degree in public relations, he is a popular motivational speaker and is actively involved with the foundation. In 1998, he published a book, Eleven Seconds, based on his life. In 2004, he made his television debut as a college hockey analyst with WMTW-TV8 in Portland, ME, and in 2005, he worked as a color analyst during ESPNU's national coverage of the 2005 NCAA D-I college hockey playoffs.  A strong and articulate spokesman for spinal cord injury survivors, Travis asked that a charitable fund be created in his name that focuses on helping others and on promoting research.

To further its charitable purpose, The Travis Roy Foundation welcomes individual, corporate and foundation support. Contributions by check, gifts of securities and other property may be made to the Travis Roy Foundation via www.travisroyfoundation.org.  Every gift helps.

The Bruins opened their 2007-2008 home slate on Thursday, October 18 with a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Their second home game of the season is on Saturday, October 20 when they take on the New York Rangers at 4:00 p.m. ET (TV:  NESN, RADIO: WBZ 1030 AM).
