“The holiday season’s such a special time of the year, and so positive and so uplifting,” KU women’s coach Bonnie Henrickson said. “You never want to be in the hospital, and you really don’t want to be in the hospital over Christmas. So it’s a chance for us to say hello and introduce ourselves and make some people smile and try to have a little holiday cheer. Our players will all tell you, it’s hard to believe (the patients) are more enriched after that visit than we are, because it really hits all of us. It’s an unbelievable opportunity, a chance to give back and try to make somebody smile in a really tough situation.”
