For Russell Wilson, memories of his father’s struggle with terminal diabetes motivate him to play an active role in supporting Seattle-area children as they battle disease. Wilson spends his Tuesdays at the local children’s hospital, lifting spirits and providing them with a brief respite.

What began as a simple hospital visit has become a personal mission for Wilson, as he raises awareness and promotes sponsorship of new treatments. And from the work, he’s taken as much enrichment as he put in.
