So instead, the Rapids came to them and players Drew Moor, Marvell Wynne, Deshorn Brown, Grant Van De Casteele and Jared Watts took a couple of hours out of their day on Tuesday March 18th.  The players played video and board games with kids as well as visiting with patients and families in their rooms. PHOTO GALLERY
