FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Arkansas women’s soccer visited the Arkansas Children’s Hospital to make festive cards and sign autographs for young Razorback fans.
“We’re always looking for opportunities to give back to the community, because they’re always supporting us,” said junior Blake Pruitt. “This was a really nice chance for us to get involved with them since they’re always at our games and there to support us.”
The presence of the Razorbacks lifted the spirits of the kids and was refreshing for the patients who come in for treatments.
“One of the moms was saying, it was nice for us to come here because they’re not just getting poked and checked-up on,” said sophomore Dee Dee Green. “I felt like it was a good opportunity for us to give back to the kids and play with them.”
The team not only brought smiles to the patients’ faces, but also their own Valentines to pass out to the children as well as help decorate heart-shaped cards.
“They give us so much,” said freshman Sarah Price. “It’s the least we could do.”
