At the West Toronto Renegades 2005 December 6, 2015 practice, the boys were treated to a guest Coach – Cal Wild, ex-captain of the Brampton Beast and founder of Cal’s Pals, a community outreach program that he developed in 2013. Cal worked with the boys on break outs and defending the zone as he brought his vast expertise as a professional hockey player to teach our young Renegades different aspects of hockey playing. What a great day and experience he brought to the practice!!
About Cal’s Pals
Cal’s Pal’s is a community outreach program that Brampton Beast captain Cal Wild founded at the beginning of the 2013-2014 season. The program is designed to enrich the lives of children, youth, and adults through the awareness and raising of funds for Kerry’s Place Autism Services. The goal is to create awareness and enhance the quality of life for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
How it works:
- Throughout the year, Cal Wild will spend his time getting involved with Kerry’s Place and their initiatives through multiple events.
- Cal Wild will donate $10 for every point scored this season. This amount will then be matched by a corporate sponsor of the foundation or the team.
- Cal Wild and the Brampton Beast will be giving the opportunity to families from Kerry’s Place to experience a professional hockey game in the comfort of the Cal’s Pal’s Suite. Following the game, families will get the chance to meet and greet Cal.
“This year, I decided through my experiences that I wanted to work with Kerry’s Place again,’ the Beast captain said. “My time spent with their individuals has given me some of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my life. For me, it felt like a natural progression to continue moving forward with Kerry’s Place because it’s something that I’m comfortable with and something I strongly believe in.”
