SPOKANE, Wash - Kids at Sacred Heart Children's Hospital in Spokane got a special treat Wednesday morning: a visit from two Seattle Seahawks.
Tight end Luke Willson and wide receiver Tanner McEvoy flew in to surprise the kids and the staff. It's something the staff with Children's Miracle Networks of the Inland Northwest has been working on as part of their ongoing commitment to improve the hospital stays of the region's youngest patients.
"This visit will mean so much to our children and our fans and our caregivers," said Jim Bradley, senior director of support services, as he welcomed Willson and McEvoy. "I know it's going to make their day just a little bit brighter."
"We're definitely excited to be here," said McEvoy, as they set out to meet the patients.
The players brought pennants and pins and signed autographs for excited patients and staff members.
They then moved to the roof to raise the 12th man flag with a patient named Logan. Then, the staff joined Willson in reenacting his Techno Tuesday flute celebration that's become a hit on social media.
