Zdeno Chara, former captain of the Boston Bruins, showcased exceptional generosity and sportsmanship by participating in the esteemed Boston Marathon.

His dedicated run aimed to support two charitable foundations, the Hoyt Foundation and the Thomas E. Smith Foundation, in their joint initiative known as the Zdeno Chara Paralysis Grant.
This grant provides annual assistance of $14,000 to families coping with paralysis, symbolizing Chara's remarkable 14 seasons with the Bruins.
The deserving recipient of this year's grant is Vaughn Pfeffer, a Canton resident who experienced a spinal cord stroke, has a step-mother battling cancer, and whose father suffered paralysis from a bus accident.
Chara personally surprised Pfeffer at his home, presenting him with the ceremonial check. This collaborative effort exemplifies sportsmanship, compassion, and the indomitable human spirit.
Combined with prior support, the grant totals an impactful $25,000, significantly improving Pfeffer's life and instilling hope for the future. Such inspiring endeavors highlight the profound influence of unity and the capacity to positively transform lives.
