Olympic figure skating champion Yuna Kim will donate 40 million won (U.S. $36000), her fee for appearing in an upcoming radio campaign, to the Korea Foundation for Persons with Disabilities.


The South Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare says the campaign is being produced to commemorate the Day for the Disabled on Tuesday, April 27th. It will air in in South Korea on radio until April 30th.

In the 40-second recording, the 19-year-old champion says she’s cried for joy twice this year. Once when she won the gold medal at the Vancouver Olympics, and then when the Korean wheelchair curling team won the silver medal at the Vancouver Winter Paralympics.
