nats music "you're the only girl that I adore"
Preston Dennard, former NFL player: "I come back every year to support the children's hospital in the celebrity golf tournament it's just wonderful to do the tour here because each year I've met some wonderful kids." "to sort of bring a little brightness, fun and excitement in their day when they're here because no one really wants to be here."
nats "hospital cart"
Amanda Moon, mother: "McKenna has a lot of GI issues she also has some neurological stuff she has seizures and we're in and out up here quite a bit and we have been for the passed almost three years now."

"It just kind of lightens the day a little bit brings in some laughter and smiles."
nats "i hope you get to feeling better okay?"
Jonathon Herndon, professional fisherman: "I identify with these kids and I kind of hold a special place in my heart for them because when I was little I got hurt and so I was in and out of these hospitals and I really know what it's like to be in here with a case of the why me sometimes and just looking at the walls and they're closing in and you have great doctors and facilities here but it can kind of play with your mind a little bit so I try to visit these kids and just let them know look what I've accomplished and they can do anything they want to if they just put their mind to it."
"I think it's awesome that they would take time out of their schedule to come and visit the kids and let them know that the kids aren't alone and there are people out helping raise money to help make this a better place for them."
"I can chase big fish or big cardboard checks all over the country but there's nothing like coming and seeing these patients and seeing the smile on their face because someone just took the time out of their day to visit them."
