It’s no secret we look after our own here at Barstool. Carl Feretti was one of BS Philly’s first and greatest supporters. A Stoolie through and through. Could have been you, me or any other normal asshole who comes to this site on a daily basis. Even though Helmet passed in December, we will still do everything in our power to ensure his memory lives on.
That’s why when his buddy Nick reached out to say he’s running a half-marathon in Helmet’s honor with money being raised going to Carl’s cause, it was a no brainer to help. We don’t have to go nuts here people, but we do have to hit the goal which is currently only $100 short. No excuse not to be able to hit that mark. Like I said, all proceeds raised Nick will be donating to #Helmetstrong. Let’s do this.
Also, Helmet was about a big of a Flyers fan you can get and this is unfortunately the first playoffs he’ll be missing. Yet another reason for the boys to make a run.
