On Tuesday, the American Lung Association will begin its promotion of a huge March charity event, Champions Unite, which is a live broadcast featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes appearances by Hollywood celebrities and MLB players.
The celebrity participants will be showcasing their skills in a fun and heartwarming talent show.
Funds raised at the event will support lung health for all, including overcoming COVID-19, tobacco control, youth anti-vaping, and clean air—because when you can’t breathe, nothing else matters.
Former Dodger outfielder Tony Gwynn, Jr. will also participate in the extravaganza, which is slated to take place on Thursday, March 25.
Both Jansen and Pollock endured their own battles with COVID-19 in the days preceding the start of the Dodgers’ 2020 World Championship season.
Pollock’s bout with the coronavirus was especially difficult, as he was forced to quarantine himself just months after the premature birth of his daughter, Maddi.
Fans are encouraged to sign up at ALAChamiopnsUnite.com to receive newsletter updates and a chance to win a video chat with Gwynn, Jr. himself.
The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, March 24.
The pre-show for the fundraising event is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time. All the main action is slated to start at 6:00 p.m.
In the meantime, please follow the American Lung Association in California on Twitter at @californialung for the latest news surrounding the event, including daily trivia contests and other related activities.
