Kentucky coach Matthew Mitchell always talks about developing character and how important that is for his program.
Monday he backed that up when he put on a Batman costume and went to the Kentucky Children’s Hospital with team members to deliver Halloween treats to patients.
The athletes handed out candy in the KCH playroom so children and families staying at KCH could enjoy Halloween festivities and meet the UK players at the same time.
Kentucky Children’s Hospital (KCH) is dedicated to providing advanced-level pediatric care to Kentucky’s youngest patients. KCH consists of 42 private acute rooms, a 66-bed neonatal intensive care unit, a 12-bed pediatric intensive care unit and seven progressive care beds.
