Jon Rahm has played a key role in inaugurating a golf facility for children at the Niño Jesús Hospital in Madrid. Former Biscayan Golf Federation president, Mr. Barrenechea, was the visionary behind this wonderful idea.
Unfortunately, he passed away last year. Jon Rahm is overjoyed to be a part of this project, fully recognizing its significance in bringing hope and joy to children battling cancer.
“It was an honour to be there and be a part of the opening.
It was sad he (Barrenechea) couldn’t be there, but it’s still special. It is not only a children’s hospital, a lot of it is going to be allocated for children suffering from cancer. Out of 60 kids on that wing, only ten could make it outside because they were in good enough health.
"- Jon Rahm said, as quoted by golfmonthly.com! Jon Rahm has once again demonstrated the size of his compassionate heart. He holds a special place in his heart for children who bravely battle cancer with a smile. Being one of those who can bring smiles to these loving children is a truly heartwarming experience.
“They are always the happiest kids I know. It puts our problems very much in perspective, and it was truly special to be a part of it”.
