RIP Brendan Burke; Donate to his cause

2 years ago today Burkie got that phone call no father should ever have to get.

It was only made all the more painful when we knew how special Brendan was and how he was a real life hero.

There has been an campaign set up at Maple Leafs Hot Stove where they are collecting donations towards the Brendan Burke Memorial Scholarship with Brian Burke's blessing. Donate here: http://mapleleafshotstove.com/2012/0...l-scholarship/

There's also a great read on Brendan and his significance here: http://mapleleafshotstove.com/2012/0...ke/#more-25740

As a gay sports fan, I can't say how inspirational Brendan was to me in my inner struggle for acceptance.

Seems like a worthy cause and Brendan was definitely very brave. Far too soon for him to pass but it's always so pleasant to see Brian and Leafs Nation supporting this cause even after Brendan's passing.

a) Random note: The special MLHS header to go with the article is my work
b) You should totally donate to the cause

Have a problem with a post? REPORT IT.

Reports bring issues to the forefront much quicker than complaining about them on the boards.

Keep the thread about donating to this cause please.
