No. 71 has joined forces with No. 7 in the fight against autism.
The Ted Lindsay Foundation announced today that Dylan Larkin has joined the charitable organization as a board member and spokesperson.
“It is my privilege to join Mr. Lindsay and his foundation to help fight autism,” Larkin said. “I look forward to working with them to help find a cause and to assist children with autism and their families.”
The Ted Lindsay Foundation was established in 2001 by the iconic Red Wing and Hockey Hall of Famer. Since its inception, the foundation has raised more than $4.5 million for research and educational programs focusing on the cause and management of autism.
“Dylan Larkin is a tremendous addition to our foundation,” Lindsay said. “At just 22 years old, he has already shown the drive and determination to make a difference, both on and off the ice. I’m honored to have him on my team. Dylan will be an important part of the Ted Lindsay Foundation for years to come.”
