Boston Charity Beanpot Challenge Photography by Walpole Event Photographer, Dan Busler

Eleven Seconds – the book by Travis Roy about his life and his accident during his first shift of his first ice hockey game for Boston University.

A few years ago I got to meet Travis at one of his speaking engagements that i was photographing for Dell Computer. Since that day as one of Travis Roy Foundation’s volunteers I’ve been lucky enough to photograph many of the events the  foundation holds throughout the year.

The Charity Beanpot Challenge is a hockey game .. well actually two hockey games held each year at BU’s Agganis Arena. The teams are made up of ice hockey players who skate each week and some who may only skate a few times a year. But they are all there to honor and help support the efforts of Travis Roy Foundation. Some went to BU with Travis and some are from the corporate world.

Travis watches from the sideline and the players flock to spend time with him before, during and after the games.

I’ll let this slideshow  video give you a better look at the games and the day.

Boston Sports Photography by Walpole Sports Photographer, Dan Busler { Boston Whiffle Ball Challenge 2014 }

Travis Roy Foundation – “Helping Others Move Forward” … Franciscan Hospital for Children –  “Providing Compassionate Care” 

These are the organizations behind the Boston Whiffle Ball Challenge which was held at Boston University’s Nickerson Field on June 22, 2014 

Hundreds of players came out for the day of some serious whiffle ball, food, family and support. And thousands of dollars were raised for these worthy causes through their generosity. 

Here’s a look at the day that I was honored to be asked to photograph.
