Our Czech friends at Flyers CZ were able to share some info behind it.
The Jakub Voracek Foundation will help fight multiple sclerosis, which his sister Petra has.
MS is defined as a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate, resulting in a wide range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems.
Voracek will donate $1,000 for every point he accumulates this year, which we’re hoping amounts to around $82,000 by the end of the regular season.
