Members of the Regina Pats were able to brighten some kids days Wednesday at the Regina General Hospital.
Riley Woods, Adam Brooks, Chase Harrison and Tyler Brown all took time Wednesday to visit with kids and drop off teddy bears that were collected at last Friday’s teddy bear toss game.
20 year-old forward and team Captain Adam Brooks, said the opportunity to help brighten a kids day is something the team always enjoys doing.
“When we walked into the rooms and gave some kids some bears, seeing their faces light up there is no better feeling for us.”
Brooks added it also makes them appreciate their lives more.
“Anytime you can come in here and make some kids feel great it’s awesome, we do a lot of stuff and we usually walk away feeling pretty thankful for the life that we’re living and being able to play hockey. We’re happy to be here and happy to be able to do this stuff in the community.”
Over 2,600 bears and plush toys were collected at the game last Friday.
The Pats return to the ice Friday in Moose Jaw.
