Kings, Drew Doughty lead efforts relating to WALK FOR KIDS event

2:17 PM

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty will help lead a fundraising event for Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times through their Walk For Kids event on April 3.

As part of the event – which takes place on April 3 at Exposition Park – the Kings and Doughty will set up a virtual walker page (the team is traveling that day) and Drew is going to match every gift made on his Walk page.

Proceed will support the Camp’s W.O.L.P. (Wilderness Outdoor Leadership Program) for teen cancer patients and siblings.

To help support this cause, and for more information, click here: walkforkids.org/goto/drew.

About the program:

  • W.O.L.P. is grounded in the philosophy that leadership is cultivated when youth are empowered to take initiative, entrusted to independently carry out activities/projects, and work as a team to tackle challenges in a safe, supportive environment.
  • Over the course of 6 days and 5 nights, campers participate in a variety of activities ranging from ropes courses and 50’ climbing tower, to horseback riding, to an overnight hike/backpacking trip, to team building activities, to individual goal setting, to leading activities for younger campers. The level of responsibility they are given fosters important life skills, but also builds confidence in teens grappling with illness and learning to navigate the complex realities of adulthood.
  • This year the camp will serve 240 teens in the W.O.L.P. program. Camp’s programs are provided free of charge as the majority of  families do not have the financial resources to send their children to camp, nor are other camps equipped to handle the special medical and emotional needs of cancer patients and siblings.
  • Drew’s donation will underwrite the W.O.L.P. program and support the purchase of much needed new equipment that will be utilized for the next five years.  Specific equipment needs include two mountain wheelchairs, which are designed for hiking and maneuvering over rough terrain ($5,000 each); 25 overnight backpacks ($200 each); and 25 outdoor sleeping bags ($125 each).
