SONAR AND THE ALS CHALLENGE

Capture6BY: Mitch Beck, Publisher, Howlings

A quick note on a Thursday…
“Sonar,” the lovable mascot of the Hartford Wolf Pack, accepted the challenge posed by the Worcester Sharks mascot, “Fin,” to help raise awareness of ALS.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is defined as, “A disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.” ALS is also known by another name, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
As you’ll see in the video posted on the Wolf Pack’s Facebook page, Sonar is up to the challenge and calls out several other mascots along the way. “Screech” of the team’s I-91 rival, Springfield Falcons; “Storm” of the Pack’s in-state rival, Bridgeport Sound Tigers and “Rocky” of the AA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins Major League Baseball team, the New Britain Rock Cats.

PACK’S SONAR MAKES LOTS OF FRIENDS IN MONROE

The Hartford Wolf Pack‘s lovable mascot, Sonar, came to Monroe, Connecticut on Friday afternoon to visit Camp Teepee.

Founded in 1950, the Lakewood-Trumbull YMCA, which runs Camp Teepee, provides a full range of fitness, activity, sports, child care and camp programs throughout the summer for children ages 5-15 in Monroe, CT. Camp Teepee is both licensed by the State of Connecticut and accredited by the American Camping Association.  The camp grounds sit on 47 acres of land and includes three pools, tennis courts, a pond, hiking trails, a field, several program pavilions.

This was not the first time Sonar has made a visit to Monroe over the years. In fact Sonar has been there several times at the request of Don Casey, Jr, a professional educator at Stepney Elementary School and a Camp Tepee Unit Leader.

Casey is a HUGE New York Rangers and Hartford Wolf Pack fan. As a part of Camp Teepee’s, annual “Favorite Team Jersey and Cap Day,” Casey invited Sonar to come and share the lunch hour with the kids. Continue reading
