Huskies Visit Ronald McDonald House
Throughout the season, the Washington women's basketball team has made periodic visits to the nearby Ronald McDonald House in Sand Point to visit sick children. On Wednesday night, the Huskies again spent a few hours of their time at RMH.
The Ronald McDonald House is an independent charity that allows families with seriously ill children a place to stay during hospital trips.
During a two-hour visit, the Huskies chatted, played video games and made drawings with about a dozen children. Part of the reason the Huskies enjoy these visits so much is because it offers children with grim outlooks a positive moment.
"The kids are just so cute," said Mackenzie Argens. "It means a lot to be able to spend time with them. It's special to us to be able to give back. It also puts things in perspective."
An invitation was extended for the children to attend the Huskies' Apple Cup game against the Cougars this Sunday. The Huskies (7-10, 2-6) are looking to snap a two-game losing streak as they welcome their rivals from across the state to Alaska Airlines Arena.
