Chicago Bulls players and Benny the Bull brighten young spirits
Two Chicago Bulls guards, Rajon Rondo and Isaiah Canaan, along with spunky team mascot Benny the Bull, brought cheer to Advocate Children’s Hospital patients last week.
Rondo signed autographs, took photos and shot hoops with patients at the hospital’s Oak Lawn campus March 31. Canaan hung out with patients at the hospital’s Park Ridge campus on March 28.
Advocate Children’s Hospital is part of Advocate Health Care, a corporate sponsor of the Chicago Bulls. Typically a player and Benny visit the hospital at least once a season as part of the sponsorship agreement.
