Alex Ovechkin partnered with Giant Foods in late 2019 to release a breakfast cereal entitled Ovi O’s. The honey-and-almond flavored cereal was wildly popular among Capitals fans and beloved by the namesake himself. “MAKE IT A GR8 MORNING!” Ovechkin said.
There was also a charity aspect to Ovi O’s as well. Thursday, The Great 8 revealed how much was raised: a staggering $44,008.
“It’s an honor to be able to present this Ovi O’s check to Children’s Cancer Foundation,” Alex Ovechkin said in a video while holding a gigantic check. “Thank you fans for your support of a great cause.”
The money will help the Children’s Cancer Foundation fund local research and provide programs for kids who are fighting cancer.
