Welcome back to Go Big to Give Big Podcasts. Today we have with us Andrew Ladd!

When a top NHL player and doctor combine forces, a charity offering exciting opportunities to youth is born. Through Ladd Foundation, Andrew and Brandy strive to offer experiences and support to those causes that have affected their family and friends. Originally from British Columbia and Alberta, respectively, this couple holds a long history of community engagement and a demonstrated commitment to service. When the Ladds give, they give in a big, meaningful way.

As former Captain of the Winnipeg Jets and the Atlanta Thrashers, Andrew demonstrated the leadership qualities and values he proudly espouses. Throughout his career, Andrew has led his teams by accumulating one of the top point totals for left-wingers in the league.

Tweetable Quotes:

They coined the term Buffalo because they were the only animal that when a storm hit, they wouldn't run away from the storm. They would band together and push right through it. So they would get through the storm quicker and when things get uncomfortable, it's better to face them head-on because you'll get through them quicker and be stronger on the other side. The Buffalo mindset is what we're trying to instill in kids through sport.” - Andrew Ladd
