Las Vegas Aces Star Alysha Clark Continuing To Make A Difference In the Seattle Community

On Tuesday July, 9th 2024, Alysha Clark along with her teammates Sydney Colson, Tiffany Hayes, and Kate Martin made a surprise visit to the dialysis unit at Seattle Children’s Hospital to spend time with the children. During her visit, Clark pledged a $3,000 donation to the dialysis unit on behalf of herself and the Aces organization. Currently, Clark has raised over $30,000 for the dialysis unit at the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Per the Las Vegas Aces Instagram page, “Alysha met Reese and her father Josh a few years ago while volunteering at the cancer unit at Seattle Children’s Hospital. Today, we are happy to report that Reese is cancer free! Alysha surprised Reese with a visit to meet the Aces after today’s W!”

Clark added, “Josh A. Estes thank you for sharing your time with me back then and today! Seeing Reese happy and healthy was the best part of this visit.”

The Las Vegas star and three-time WNBA Champion’s community efforts have always been on display. The former Seattle Storm guard developed a relationship with the Seattle Children’s Hospital dating back to 2013. When she began volunteering in the cancer unit, she discovered that there was a need for new toys to be added to the common area for children and family

Her volunteer efforts would lead to her establishing her annual toy drive two years later in 2015.  She has donated well over 15,000 toys for the children’s playroom located inside the hospital.  

During her final season in Seattle, Clark and the Seattle Storm partnered with Denali Advanced Integration, and the company matched the value of every toy that was donated to fuel Clark’s annual program. Denali, is a leading technology integrator, specializing in providing comprehensive end-to-end solutions that are tailored to multinational companies. 


“Any escape we can offer these courageous kids fighting for their lives is something we should all rally around as a community. The Seattle Storm and Seattle Children’s Hospital are championship organizations in their own right and we are proud to connect with two of our community partners to collectively make a big impact for kids,” said Majdi Daher, CEO and Founder of Denali Advanced Integration.


“This Toy Drive is very dear to my heart. The impact it’s made for these amazing kids fighting cancer has been so huge,” Clark said. “During the pandemic and fight for racial equality in this country, I want to continue helping spread love and hope, even if it’s virtual. The Toy Drive has taken on a much bigger meaning than being just a toy drive. It provides a laugh when treatments make kids feel not so great; it’s a smile when they’re feeling a little sad; it’s a ‘hug’ for the parents when they’re feeling overwhelmed; and it’s a reminder that there is still a lot of good.”
