P.K. Subban teams up with the Foundation

Thank you P.K. and welcome! Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban and his foundation, the P.K. Subban Foundation, have pledged a minimum of $10 million to the Montreal Children's Hospital, the largest philanthropic commitment ever made by a professional athlete in Canada. As part of the agreement, Subban will also assist the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation as a spokesperson for select Foundation fundraising campaigns and flagship events. In recognition of this extraordinary support, the Children's officially inaugurated the "P.K. Subban Atrium," the 486-square-meter, three-story public space located at the heart of the hospital's new facilities. This new partnership will also see the creation of P.K.'s Helping Hand, a fund dedicated to assisting vulnerable families financially devastated by a child’s illness. To further cement the partnership, Subban will join the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation (MCHF) Board of Directors. "Montreal has given me so much and today I want to give back," said P.K. Subban during his press conference, adding: "Every time you walk into this hospital, you'll what I stand for." There were moving exchanges between patients of the Children's, cub reporters for the day, and P.K. Subban before the athlete went for a tour of the hospital to meet with more young patients.
