As part of their jersey sponsorship, the Rangers and Northwell Health will identify several inspiring New Yorkers who will be given the opportunity to help design their own Rangers practice jersey. Rangers players will wear these jerseys periodically throughout the 2020-21 season. Each designer will share their story and inspiration behind their jersey through a custom content series featured on Rangers digital channels.
"When we expanded our partnership with Northwell Health four years ago, a core focus for each of us was making a positive impact on our communities and recognizing those who go above and beyond for people in need," said Ron Skotarczak, executive vice president, marketing partnerships, Madison Square Garden Sports. "Despite all the challenging moments throughout 2020, we witnessed acts of heroism that show how strong New York truly is and we can't wait to bring these stories to light through this platform."
"We are honored to partner with The New York Rangers on this campaign as it provides another opportunity to put a spotlight on some of the bravest acts we've seen during this pandemic," said Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. "These inspiring New Yorkers are the real winners this season so it's only fair that their jerseys - and their stories - get time on the ice."
NYRises focuses on highlighting New Yorkers who remind us to never stop, no matter how tough the situation. The Rangers and Northwell Health will honor hundreds of people throughout the season by providing custom practice jerseys, recognition on Rangers social channels and providing charitable donations on behalf of these incredible New Yorkers.
