Davie, Fla. – Miami Dolphins players Isaac Asiata and Mike Pouncey, cheerleaders Agustina and Jennifer, mascot T.D. along with Jennifer and Art Gase today visited Baptist Children’s Hospital.
“It was awesome. The feeling that we got giving back to kids in need that are sick right now is a great feeling,” Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said. “I’m glad to be out here giving back to this community that gives so much to us.”
The Dolphins visited rooms to distribute Baskets of Hope filled with toys, games, craft items, stuffed animals, gift cards, and other items as well as take photos with the patients in an effort to give hope and brighten their day.
“These are kids that really have never seen T.D. or any of the football players up close, so when they walk into the room, they are ecstatic,” Baptist Health South Florida Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer Couceyro said. “It’s always a highlight when the Miami Dolphins come to visit our patients at Baptist Children’s Hospital.”
