Washington Valor players participate in Hope For Henry hospital visit at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital

July 19, 2019
On July 15 the Washington Valor and Monumental Sports & Entertainment Foundation teamed up with Hope for Henry to visit children at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

Washington Valor defensive back Oshay Dunmore and wide receiver Phillip Barnett went room to room with Hope for Henry’s Super Duper Fun Cart and treated the kids to Valor-themed swag courtesy of Hope for Henry and cupcakes donated by Georgetown Cupcake. They also spent time taking pictures with and talking to the children and their parents.

“Even if it’s just one moment we can give these kids to remember and just have some peace or some happiness, it’s good to be out here,” said Dunmore. “Anytime you have an opportunity to give back, you’ve got to take advantage of it.”

Since 2003 Hope for Henry has improved the lives of more than 45,000 children at hospitals in the Washington, D.C., metro area including MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and across the country. They design, test, implement, measure and distribute the latest and most effective pediatric patient experience programming available.

Hope for Henry

Hope for Henry’s mission is to reinvent how hospitals care for seriously ill children through innovative programs that entertain, reduce stress and empower children and their families to be active participants in their care. Advances in medical science are saving more sick children than ever before, but the care has not kept pace with the science. Experts recognize that caring for the whole child is critical to help reduce the anxiety, sadness and isolation that accompany lengthy hospital stays and painful medical treatments.
