P.K. Subban did not fullfill his promise, but continues his association with the Montreal Hospital

P.K. Subban admitted that he did not achieve his goal of raising $10 million in seven years for the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The former number 76 admitted this non-success to the Bureau of Investigation of the Journal de Montréal.

Recall that in 2015, Subban had pledged to raise $10 million for sick children, and the goal was to raise it in seven years. At the time,was referred to as “the largest philanthropic commitment ever made by a professional athlete in Canada”.

However, it is important to note that P.K. made this commitment in a context where he was playing with the Montreal Canadiens, and the planet went through two years of pandemic, preventing some fundraising activities.

So far he has raised $6.3 million, even though he left the Tricolore six years ago. In order to fulfill his mandate in full, he continues his involvement with the hospital with the goal of raising the $10 million originally promised.


“In my eyes, this is a lifetime partnership. I was a little nervous with the pandemic, because I respect my relationship with the hospital. But we’ve always remained close, even after the Nashville deal. There are still some effects of the pandemic, but the world seems to be getting back to normal!” Subban told JdM.

His commitment to the Montreal Hospital will continue until at least 2025.
