MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban and his foundation have pledged at least $10 million to the Montreal Children's Hospital.
The hospital is calling the money the largest philanthropic commitment ever made by a professional athlete in Canada.
The agreement will see Subban become a spokesperson for certain fundraising campaigns and flagship events organized by the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation.
In recognition of the donation, the Children's officially inaugurated today the "P.K. Subban Atrium," a 486-square-metre, three-storey public space located at the heart of the hospital's new facilities.
