Big bucks for charity

Calgary Roughnecks assistant captain Kaleb Toth has scored a lot of important goals in his National Lacrosse League career. But last night was certainly memorable.

Toth, who had notched 163 NLL goals heading into the game, was dared by a local morning radio man to hold up a sign for that station if he scored last night and, in return, Toth would get a cheque he could donate to a charity of his choice.

Snakebitten for the first half, Toth finally bulged the twine in the third quarter and made for the bench right away, grabbed the sign and held it up for the crowd and the Jumbotron.

"Matt O'Neil from Jack FM dared me to hold up a Jack sign after my first goal and he'd give me $500 for a charity of my choice," said Toth. "So, as soon as I scored my first goal, I just ran to the bench, grabbed the sign and put it up and $500 will be going to the Children's Hospital."

Toth said the chance to do something worthy like that makes scoring a NLL goal that much sweeter.

"It was pretty big," said Toth.
