Rich Clune is an outgoing, one-of-a-kind character who makes his presence known on and off the ice. But behind that charismatic smile and sarcastic (and somewhat dark) sense of humor, the 26-year-old left winger from Toronto has seen his share of downfalls and heartbreaks. Drug and alcohol addiction is a nasty battle to overcome, but despite these tribulations, Rich Clune fought back against his demons and has continued on the winning side of said battle. The Predators and its fans are no stranger to welcoming players who have battled addictions; Jordin Tootoo and Brian McGrattan were very open with their hardships and were not afraid to ask for help when needed. Rich Clune is no exception.
And with that, Preds fans, we ask you to help Rich Clune and a program that is near and dear to his heart. With the help of Renascent and his mother Anne Marie, Rich was able to overcome his demons and be able to continue his professional career as the hockey player and goon we have all come to know and love.
Both Rich and his mother are nearing their goal of raising $10,000 for the cause and they need your help!
