The patients at Levine Children’s Hospital (LCH) had a lot to cheer about when the Cincinnati Bearcats and the North Carolina Tar Heels went head-to-head in the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, NC. Football players from both teams made an appearance at Seacrest Studios before their face off on the gridiron. You would not have guessed any rivalry though from these bigger-than-life teams when they focused on patients. Their goal was to bring joy to the children who could not be home for the holidays and they clearly scored in that endeavor.
The Tar Heels (Atlantic Coast Conference), led by their coach, Larry Fedora, and the Bearcats (American Athletic Conference), led by their coach, Tommy Tuberville, brought music, laughter, and stories to Seacrest Studios. Both teams SANG and shared New Year’s resolutions with patients at LCH. Players also talked about their own injuries and how they work to overcome them and get back in the game.
The studio erupted in laughter as these star athletes, and their coaches, talked about everything from free time to chocolate milk! Their competitiveness isn’t just confined to a football field either! We saw some pretty fierce competition when the players faced off with their own team members for a game of Guess What!
Seacrest Studios was an exciting place to be right after the holidays and we thank the Belk Bowl teams for taking time away from practice to show us what true sportsmanship is like. Their goal was to spread holiday cheer and they scored big points with their fans at Seacrest Studios and Levine Children’s Hospital.
