Part of being a professional athlete is being a good role model, and Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference has that role down pat.
Ference and his wife, Krista, will travel to New Orleans on Tuesday to view the damage caused by the BP oil disaster.
The visit has been organized by the Sierra Club and will include other notable athletes and former athletes such as the NHL’s Mike Richter, the NFL’s Mike Alstott and Ovie Mughelli, NASCAR’s Leilani Munter and Olympians Stacey Cook, Loree Smith and Gary Morgan.
The group will leave for a morning coastal boat tour from the Myrtle Grove Marina to witness the damage caused by the BP spill and demonstrate support for Gulf Coast communities.
The Sierra Club has been working since 1892 to protect communities, wild places and the planet itself.
