Athletes visit Mayo Clinic Children's Center

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Athletes in Med City for the National Junior Disability Championships made a special visit to the Mayo Clinic's Eugenio Litta Children's Hospital Tuesday afternoon. 

Wheeling from room to room, athletes handed out track and field bib numbers as a gift to children at the hospital. 

The group shared pictures, lots of laughs, and inspirational stories- inspiration that is felt by both parties. 

"I think we often have patients who are concerned...Am I going to be able to do the things that I want to do in my life? Am I going to be able to recover to the place that I was before? Being able to dance, or run...I think these guys are definitely an inspiration," said Child Life Program Supervisor Randy McKeeman.
