Athletes for Hope

Washington Spirit Visits MedStar Georgetown University Hospital

Members of the Washington Spirit spent over two hours connecting with patients at the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington D.C. on May 19th. Thanks to the efforts of our incredible partner Hope for Henry, players were able to spread some cheer by handing out t-shirts, delicious cupcakes and colorful balloons. 

Some highlights from the visit included teammates Gloria Douglas and Didi Haracic engaged in a dance-off with a 3-year-old patient who insisted on busting a move to Beyonce. Another group of players lifted the spirits of a patient and her family by watching funny home videos in the playroom. Others went room-to-room handing out swag that was met with big smiles and excitement by all. 

Having had such a great experience with these inspiring and wonderful kids, the team is already looking forward to their next event. As one of our most engaged groups of athletes, the Washington Spirit continues to brighten the lives of children throughout the community one visit at a time!
