There are no sports for New England professional sports teams, but that doesn't mean they aren't making an impact.

Members of the Patriots, Bruins, Celtics, Red Sox, Revolution and Boston Pride - along with Gov. Charlie Baker and Boston Mayor Marty Walsh -- sent individual messages encouraging people to stay the course during this COVID-19 pandemic while sending out a series of thanks to health care workers and other people on the front lines of this time of trouble.

Those athletes participating were:

Kevin Pillar, McKenna Brand, Bruce Cassidy, Zdeno Chara, Christian Vazquez, Devin McCourty, Jason McCourty, Dustin Pedroia, Michael Chavis, Matt Barnes, Adam Buksa, Enes Kanter, Teal Burnbury, Lovisa Selander, Jackie Bradley Jr., Semi Ojeleye, Brad Wanamaker, Kevin Plawecki, Matt Grzelcyk.
