Shaun White donates his snowboards to Make-A-Wish Foundation
Good move by a guy who didn't have the best Olympics.
Shaun White sure has tried to make good from a PR standpoint at these Olympics.
It's not like he totally needs it, but to a certain extent White's reputation was smeared by his contemporaries in the lead-up to these Games. Regardless, White made sure to say hello to some Make-A-Wish Foundation children who'd flown to Sochi to see White during his halfpipe competition.
And now, as you can see above, White donated his boards from these games to a few fans who were afforded the trip to Russia by Make-A-Wish. From left: 19-year-old Kaitlyn Lyles, who beat bone cancer; 10-year-old Ben Hughes, a leukemia survivor; and an older fan named Judson, whose back story is not known. All of them are tied to the foundation. Heck of a souvenir, right?
White recently said he hopes/believes that he'll compete in the 2018 Games in South Korea.
