Butler Bulldogs Women’s Basketball Team Shows the Heart of a Champion On and Off the Court
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Nov. 16, 2011) – Even before they take on the IPFW Mastodons this weekend at the Gates Sports Center, members of the Butler women’s basketball team will have already scored a big victory with a group of kids unable to make the game. The Bulldogs are scheduled to visit pediatric inpatients at Lutheran Children’s Hospital Saturday (Nov. 19) afternoon.
Butler players and coaching staff are expected to arrive between 4 and 4:30 p.m. and spend approximately an hour touring the units and taking part in activities with patients, families and LCH staff. Media are welcome to join the team and are encouraged to gather in Lutheran’s main lobby at approximately 4 p.m.
Tip off for Butler’s game against IPFW is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday.
Lutheran Children’s Hospital opened in 1999 as a result of several local pediatricians who envisioned bringing families throughout northeastern Indiana access to expert pediatric medical care that wouldn’t require a half-day’s drive to receive. Today, Lutheran Children’s Hospital teams with more than 75 pediatricians practicing in 27 areas of pediatric specialty in an environment filled with imagination and color. The award-winning design of the tree house elevator, specially decorated rooms, hallways and waiting areas invite children and their families to focus on something other than the often unpleasant purpose of their visit. Lutheran Children’s Hospital believes children are special people, not just small adults.
