What do Hollywood’s super bros do? They ping pong…for a purpose.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, hosted his 5th annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose charity event at Dodgers Stadium in support of Kershaw’s Challenge: the non-profit he and wife Ellen founded in 2011 to challenge and encourage people to use whatever passion, purpose or talent they have been given to make an impact on the lives of others in need. The charity partners with organizations both locally and abroad who are on the front lines of change in the lives of vulnerable and at-risk children. In the United States, Kershaw’s Challenge seeks to foster strong connections in the Los Angeles and Dallas communities, working with beneficiaries who do transforming work in foster care, community development and family outreach and welfare.
