Front Row is expanding on “FGF” goodness every Friday as we put our own spin on the segment by highlighting the “good” being done by familiar faces from around ESPN who are helping to make others – and themselves! – feel good. This ongoing series showcases even more ways that ESPN is #OneTeam, signifying how we are all in this together.

One of the regular Friday highlights now ingrained in the noon ET SportsCenter is a segment called “Feel Good Friday.” It’s self-explanatory.

Today, co-anchors Nicole Briscoe and Randy Scott features interviews with Andrew Walker and Jake Adkins, UMass Boston hockey teammates, who are inline skating from Massachusetts to Michigan to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Read ESPN hockey reporter Emily Kaplan’s feature.

ESPN college basketball analyst Dan Dakich and his wife, ESPN softball analyst Leigh Ross-Dakich, are helping kids in their community to get outside and moving. Their initial goal of giving children bikes in Indianapolis has taken on new meaning as they partner with the Indiana Sports Corp to further the initiative.

Dan Dakich explains the inspiration in the video below.
