The Children’s Center Rehab Hospital celebrates National Superhero Day

BETHANY, OK (KSWO)- The Children’s Center Rehab Hospital is celebrating National Superhero Day. During the week of April 24th, the Hospital is hosting a superhero week, filled with fun patient activities.

Superheroes dropped by on Friday for the nationally-recognized holiday. Staff says having things like Superhero Day make a world of difference for the kids.

"It's really hard to see kids go through something nobody should have to go through," Melissa Ritchie, of the hospital, told us, "and to be able to experience a highlight in their day is rewarding for us. To see them smile and just be a kid is really special and if just bringing a superhero is all it takes, we're going to keep doing that."

You can be a superhero for patients with special healthcare needs and traumatic injuries.

Grab your cape and unleash your inner superhero by purchasing much-needed items for the day-to-day services provided to the patients from the basic needs list on Amazon.

The Hospital is also asking members of the community to grab their favorite capes and share it with the Hospital on social media using the hashtags #iamCAPEable  and #tccsuperheroes.
