Subban Galaxy Spin 2019

08/26/2019

This past weekend, NHL Superstar Defenseman P.K. Subban and the P.K. Subban Foundation hosted the Subban Galaxy Spin Charity event benefitting the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Originally drafted by Montreal back in 2009, P.K. has established himself as one of the NHL’s top contributors both on and off the rink. After the 2015-16 season, P.K. pledged a commitment to raise $10 million dollars for the Montreal Children’s Hospital by 2022.

America World Cup Alpine Ski racer, Lindsey Vonn, was also in attendance of the event – spinning alongside all of the fundraisers. For Lindsey, cycling played a crucial role in her training as one of the most decorated World Cup ski racers in US history.
