MLB star, former Diamond Dog Aaron Judge tweets support for Kids Day

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- As Kids Day 2021 is in full swing, MLB star and former Fresno State Diamond Dog, Aaron Judge, is hoping the community will give back to his Fresno community.

The New York Yankee took to Twitter Tuesday morning to ask his followers to consider donating to the cause.



For the past 33 years, Valley Children's has partnered with ABC30 and The Fresno Bee to host a fun-filled event for volunteers and sponsors across the Central Valley known as Kids Day.

"Please donate to Valley Children's Hospital so their team of experts can continue to help hundreds of thousands of kids in the Central Valley," he said in a video.

Ways to give:
  • Text GEORGE to 20222 for an automatic $10 donation
  • Go online to valleychildrens.org/kidsday to make a donation of any amount.

  • Kids Day has cumulatively raised $10 million.

    Donations to Kids Day support the hospital's Children's Fund, which helps Valley Children's Hospital give sick and injured kids the best treatment possible.
