NEGU AllStars kicked off the NEGU For Kids Pacific Coast Tour with 14 hospitals, starting in Tacoma, Wash., on Nov. 27 and ending Dec. 13 at Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC)!
Last week, NEGU AllStars – World Series champion Nick Punto and UFC fighter Jake Ellenberger visited the CHOC oncology floor Wednesday afternoon to spend time with children in treatment – the same hospital that Jessie visited and delivered her JoyJars personally.
Jessie’s Daddy Erik Rees said, “As a father that has spent what should be a special time of celebration next to the bed of an ailing child, I understand the particular hardship that these moments represent.”
The Pacific Coast tour also made stops in Los Angeles, Riverside and Long Beach with many NEGU AllStar visitors including Olympic Gold medalists Nastia Liukin, Jordyn Wieber, Lenny Krayzelburg and members of the Lucas Oil racing team, among others!!!
