P.K. Subban unveils Winter Wonderland at Montreal Children's Hospital
Habs star follows up on $10 M donation to hospital with Christmas-themed party for kids
P.K. Subban's back and pulling at our heartstrings once again.
The star Montreal Canadiens defenceman tweeted a video Thursday of his latest effort dedicated to the young patients at the Montreal Children's Hospital.
The secret is out! This year <a href="https://twitter.com/AirCanada">@AirCanada</a> and I surprised some kids from the <a href="https://twitter.com/HopitalChildren">@HopitalChildren</a>. Happy Holidays to all! <a href="https://t.co/kyU4kyzYVC">https://t.co/kyU4kyzYVC</a>—@PKSubban1
The video captures the transformation of the hospital's P.K. Subban Atrium into the "Winter Wonderland," a playground complete with presents for all the kids and their parents.
The atrium was named for Subban after the 26-year-old donated $10 million to the Montreal Children's Hospital last September.
The donation 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.
Subban also recently challenged Canadians to join him in recording themselves singing Jingle Bells to raise the spirits of children in pediatric hospitals around the country.
Among those who accepted Subban's challenge were Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, who tweeted a bilingual performance of Jingle Bells.
