Henrik Lundqvist, G, New York Rangers
Lundqvist and his wife, Therese, have raised more than $3.2 million since the 2014 inception of the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation (HLF), which benefits Together for Better, New York Presbyterian Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald Barnford in Sweden and the Garden of Dreams Foundation (GDF) as well as HLF’s own initiative – the HLF Young Ambassador Program. To date, HLF has directly given grants and made commitments of more than $1.5 million in support of children’s health and education. Lundqvist, who has served as a spokesperson for GDF since 2009, helped that organization raise $650,000 in 2019-20 alone. He also has been active in COVID-19 relief efforts, auctioning off a game-worn mask that raised $37,000 via the All In Challenge and donating $100,000 through HLF to feed New Yorkers in need. That contribution provided approximately 68,000 meals and aided 8,000 children and their families.
