VIDEO: Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Thank You to Their Weekly Visitors…Russell & Ashton Wilson
- Updated: December 13, 2013
Russell Wilson is an immensely likely superstar. Undersized. Under-projected. Over achieving and delivering in every sense — both on an OFF the field. He’s always had a great reputation as a person, aside from his skills as a signal caller. This story and video serve as incredibly compelling evidence to validate that rep.
Stop what you’re doing and check it out. In a modern sports world where so many athletes can use their status for good (and not enough do), here’s one guy who is absolutely realizing that privilege, embracing that responsibility and simply doing it right. The video is a thank you tribute put together by the staff and various patients (and parents of patients) at Seattle Children’s Hospital. It’s in appreciation of Russell Wilson and his WEEKLY visits (every Tuesday) to visit the facility and its residents (along with his wife Ashton).
It’s one of those days I like having a little slice of the Interwebs of my own, if only so I can contribute to pushing stories like this farther out there. Well done, Russell.
Now, if you’ll all excuse me, it’s a little dusty in here and I seem to have something in my eye.
