Brent's relationship with Bob McEwen began when Coach McEwen's son Tim was a patient at the Montreal Children's Hospital along with Brent. As their friendship developed, Brent revealed that his biggest dream was to be involved with a major hockey team. The John Abbott College Islanders played a role in the fulfillment of that dream.

While the original inspiration for the Mingo-McEwen Fund came from Brent, subsequently two other youngsters joined the team, Jordan Gillis in the second year and Meagan Harney in the third.
