On Tuesday, October 17th, Calvin joined an outstanding group of heroes to help create a better world for children and youth living in some of the most difficult and dangerous places on earth.
The Heroes Gala raised over $2.6M in critical funds to help children rise above adversity using the power of play.
Right To Play is a global organization that attempts to teach children in need with educational games. It was founded in 2000 by Olympic gold medallist Johann Olav Koss. Right To Play’s programs are facilitated by more than 14,900 local volunteer coaches and more than 620 international staff.
