Montreal Canadien hockey player P.K. Subban recently announced that he will be donating $10 million over the next seven years to the Montreal Children’s Hospital. P.K. Subban is a defenseman and an alternate captain for the Canadiens.
The $10 million from the hockey player’s foundation, paid out over seven years, will be used in part for a fund called P.K.’s Helping Hands, which will help families struggling financially with a child’s illness.
Mr. Subban will be earning $65 million over the next seven years as a part of his $72 million deal which he signed prior to last season.
Since he announced his donation the hospital has named its new atrium after Mr. Subban.
The hospital has named its atrium in honour of P.K. Subban, after the Canadiens defenceman made what the health-care facility described as “the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history.”
