Ryan Callahan has accepted the position of Director of Player Development for Bishop Kearney Selects. Below is a statement from Cally and his family regarding their upcoming move:
“While we are looking forward to the wonderful opportunity to be back in our hometown of Rochester, we owe our deepest gratitude to Tampa Bay. We want to thank Jeff Vinik for his incredible support of our family and our foundation, the entire Tampa Bay Lightning organization for everything they have done for us, and especially the Tampa Bay Lightning fans for their kindness and generosity.
The Ryan Callahan Foundation will continue to be a presence in the Tampa Bay area, as our beloved RCF families, partner organizations, and friends in the fight against pediatric cancer remain here. All of the foundation funds raised in Tampa Bay will always stay here to benefit local families who need us the most. We will be back often to visit and continue our important work, as the foundation marches on with our mission to provide financial assistance and unforgettable experiences to children and families battling pediatric cancer. Our greatest hope is to expand our ability to help those who need it beyond Tampa, yet this city will always have a piece of our hearts as it is here that the Ryan Callahan Foundation truly came to life.
Thank you again to everyone for your encouragement and love but especially for your support of those battling pediatric cancer.” – Ryan, Kyla, and family
