LA Galaxy Players Visit CHLA

Galaxy players made the trip to Children's Hospital Los Angeles to brighten some patients' days.

LA Galaxy

A.J. DeLaGarza, Dan Gargan, Tommy Meyer, Todd Dunivant, Brian Rowe, and Trey Mitchell made a visit to Children's Hospital Los Angeles to meet patients and present them with replicas of the 2014 MLS Cup Championship ring. The yarly visits from Galaxy players to CHLA are always special for the patients, most of whom have been in the hospital for an extended period of time.

It's also great for the players, who get the opportunity to be involved in the community in yet another way and make a positive impact on the lives of the kids they visit.

Defender Todd Dunivant said of the visit, "Coming to Children's Hospital is always an awesome thing for us, we do it every year... To be able to come out here and interact with the kids is always a highlight every year."

The visit was part of an ongoing partnership between LA Galaxy, the LA Galaxy Foundation, and CHLA which has lasted for several years.

LA Galaxy staff volunteered at the hospital last month, and will also be competing in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on September 20th in an effort to raise pediatric cancer awareness. The partnership also includes StubHub Center being the host for the CHLA sports medicine conference on September 12th.
