WWE has raised an enormous amount of money for paediatric cancer research, per the company’s Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon.
WWE has been involved in a number of charitable endeavours over the years, most notably Connor’s Cure, which was established at UPMC Children’s Hospital Foundation in 2014 by Paul “Triple H” Levesque.
McMahon posted on her Twitter yesterday afternoon (October 21):
“Thanks to our partners & the @WWEUniverse, $252K+ was raised in September for pediatric cancer research! On behalf of @ConnorsCure, @TheVFoundation, & @WWECommunity, thank you for getting us closer to seeing a day where every child is cancer free.”
WWE opened up the Connors Cure foundation in memory of Connor ‘The Crusher’ Michalek, a WWE super fan who passed away back in 2014.
WWE isn’t the only one doing amazing things for sick children: earlier this year former WWE Champion John Cena broke the Guinness World Record for most Make-A-Wish visits of any celebrity in the world, after granting 650 wishes for the organization.
You can make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation here.
