Bringing Hope and Smiles to Florida Hospital for Children

Athletes for Hope arranged a visit by Professional Boxer, Roberto Benitez with kids from Florida Hospital for Children last week. “I was able to visit with many children and spoke faith and hope into each and every room visited. Their families really enjoyed my visit and I was able to treat them with Merchandise I had on hand,” said the fighter. One of the children’s parents told Roberto that they were having difficulties being with their son during his brain surgery due to cost of the treatment. They have set up a crowd funding page to assist with expenses of his father’s travel. Roberto met with the family and offered support. His goal for the Children’s Hospital visit was to “help breathe air of hope and inspiration” to the children. From the feedback we have seen from the hospital, he met his goal.
