From a young age,

Brendan has always understood the importance of family and community involvement. While playing for the Vancouver Giants, Brendan lost his grandfather, one of his biggest supporters growing up to prostate cancer. Brendan made a commitment that he would donate $20 to the BC Prostate Cancer Foundation for every Vancouver Giants win. Brendan would continue to be active in the community throughout his career with the Vancouver Giants. As an NHL player, Brendan even more so feels the need to give back to the community.

Giving back

This past summer, Brendan organized a Charity Softball game in Vancouver. Joined by several of his NHL peers and celebrities, all proceeds of the event went to the Shriners Hospital for Children-Canada.

“First and foremost, I’m in a unique position where I can do something like this. It’s a chance to get out and have fun at the Nat but at the same time do a really good thing for some really deserving people, the Shriners Hospital for Children, I really respect the work they do.”
