On Tuesday, Sept. 24, ESPN supported a Disney Toy Delivery at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center as a part of Disney’s broader initiative, Disney Team of Heroes – which aims to deliver comfort and inspiration to families with children facing serious illness.
As part of the Disney Team of Heroes, ESPN is committed to help reimagine the patient and family experience in children’s hospitals around the world, by pairing the power of sports and magic to help ease the current realities children face while receiving treatment.
To date, Disney’s work has grown to support more than 450 children’s hospitals globally.
