Last weekend was a wonderful event called the Race for Every Child held by Children’s National Hospital. The Race raised over $1 Million for helping with care, medical costs and research.

We were fortunate to have a Washington Capitals player join us. Caps defenseman, Karl Alzner, learned what the Foundation 4 Heroes is all about, what we were doing that Saturday and he and his wife wanted to be a part of it.

Steve Olesky was also hoping to come by but practice prevented him from doing so. We appreciate it anyway.

Karl joins a growing list of supporters like Alice Cooper, Steve Lukather. Olie Kolzig, Clinton Portis and Dez Bryant that have offered support for what the Foundation is trying to do for sick children. Their support and your donations help us do this for the kids.

If you don’t have a favorite Caps player, check out these photos of Karl taking time to play with the kids and go one on one with Batman.

With all the bad news of these pro athletes in the news, how refreshing is it to hear one of our own is a great role model for kids. Karl Alzner is an athlete we can believe in and support. Go Caps!
