Over the past two decades, Henrik and Daniel Sedin have made BC Children’s Hospital a priority in their lives. As young players, they embraced the Vancouver Canucks’ mandate to give back to the community, and as a result became leaders for the team and the entire community of British Columbia.
In 2010, together with their families, Henrik and Daniel donated $1.5 million to help build the Teck Acute Care Centre at BC Children’s Hospital, and were recently on hand to help open the Canucks-themed playroom at the new hospital.
We are proud to have Henrik and Daniel, along with their families, as our Jeans Day ambassadors again this year. They are joined by Marcel de Jong of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and Jeremiah Johnson of the BC Lions as official Jeans Day 2018 ambassadors.
“Jeans Day is a great way for everyone across the province to support BC Children’s Hospital,” said Henrik Sedin, captain for the Vancouver Canucks. “Participating in the Jeans Day campaign is one of the ways we can help support the exceptional medical care BC Children’s Hospital provides for the children and families of this province, including my own.”
