Bobcats Visit Mission Children's Hospital
NBA players take a break after a tough week of training camp to hang-out with kids at Mission Children's Hospital.
The Charlotte Bobcats visited with young patients Sunday, the team is here in Asheville working out at UNCA's Kimmel Arena.
Players say they try to live by their "cats care" motto, by giving back whenever they can. People at the children's hospital says visits like these make more of an impact than the players can know.
Leigh Ruhl, Mission Children's Hospital, "when the player walks into that patient's room, it is magical to see the family's faces light up, it lets them forget about their medical difficulties for a little bit and just lifts their spirits."
The Bobcats will take on the Atlanta Hawks in a preseason game Tuesday night at the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville.
