Panthers fans invited to join Yormark on charity rides

Florida Panthers COO Michael Yormark invites fans to join him in peddling for charity on his daily Red Heart Rides benefiting the American Heart Association.

Yormark began riding 40 miles each weekday on a stationary bike at the Panthers’ JetBlue Training Facility in Coral Springs – 20 miles in the morning, 20 at noon or in the afternoon – to raise $30,000 for the AHA’a Broward Heart Ball Campaign leading up to the Panthers’ scheduled regular-season opener on Oct. 13.

Supporters can donate $25 to sponsor a mile, or $100 to ride with Yormark for a session. All contributors will be acknowledged through social media and online updates, and ride participants will receive breakfast or lunch, two tickets to Panthers Opening Night and an “I Love Panthers Hockey” merchandise kit (proceeds from the kit go to the Florida Panthers Foundation).

All proceeds will go directly to the American Heart Association. Supporters wishing to contribute can log on to:

Those who want to ride should contact Roman Gorodetskiy at

Yormark is on the Executive Leadership Team for the 2013 American Heart Association Broward Heart Ball, which will take place on April 20.
