About Give16

The Give16 story

NHL player Jason Zucker and his wife Carly, a well-known TV and radio personality, have had a deep and meaningful connection to University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital since the 2016 introduction to 8-year-old patient, Tucker Helstrom. Helstrom was the inspiration behind the GIVE16 campaigns that raise money for University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio.

From the moment I walked into Tucker’s hospital room, a friendship between us kindled. From then on, our life was changed forever.
