Earlier this week, the Sacramento State men's soccer team went on their 17th annual UC Davis Children's Hospital Holiday Visit.
The players and coaches spent their morning spreading joy at the UC Davis Children's Hospital. The team shared their skills playing soccer, helping with art projects, and spending time with the patients and families who are not able to be home this holiday season. The players spent time in the Pediatric ICU and the two Pediatric Acute Care Floors.
Stingers up! Shout out to @SacStMSoccer who made annual visit #17 to @UCDavisChildren! This holiday tradition is all about sharing in the spirit of the season. With soccer balls, shirts and stuffed toys in hand, players and coaches definitely scored a "W" with the kids! #Hornets pic.twitter.com/NYmVBgA88T— CMN at UC Davis (@CMNatUCDavis) December 18, 2018
"The compassion and kindness that each player and coach showed to our patients and families was amazing," Michelle Linenberger, the Children's Hospital Nurse Educator, said of the visit to President Nelson. "The entire medical staff at UC Davis Children's Hospital looks forward to this visit every year. The student athletes representing California State University Sacramento were truly incredible and I am grateful for their donation of not only toys, t-shirts and soccer balls, but the most important gift of their time."
