Chicago Blackhawks Center to Launch Charity
CHICAGO (AP) -- A Chicago Blackhawks player is launching a foundation dedicated to helping marginalized and at-risk youth.

Blackhawks center Dave Bolland says he understands the value of mentorship and goal-setting for young people who are struggling to make their way in life. And the Canadian-born Bolland says he wants to help them pursue their dreams.

A statement from the Blackhawks says The Dave Bolland Foundation will focus on projects in both Chicago and Toronto. It will also seek to help the charity Easter Seals.

Bolland plans to formally inaugurate his new foundation at Chicago's downtown Wit Hotel next week.
