Harlem Globetrotters at Hua Xin Hospital

28 Apr

Volunteering as Magic Hospital’s Playtime Coordinator has proved to be a truly rewarding experience time and time again.  Yesterday’s Playtime visit to Hua Xin Hospital with the Harlem Globetrotters was no exception.  In fact, it was utterly unforgettable!

I am so thankful to the Harlem Globetrotters for partnering with our organization to bring ear to ear grins to the faces of these sick little ones.  While I was familiar with their basketball skills, I had no idea just how amazing they would be with the children.  It was a blessing to watch, and I am just grateful to have played a small part.

Spinning the ball like a B-ball superstar! What better way to prep for his upcoming heart surgery?

Measuring in at 7 Feet 8 Inches, "Tiny" as they call him towers over everyone. He is certainly someone to look up to!

On behalf of Magic Hospital, I would like to thank the Harlem Globetrotters and the wonderful staff at Hua Xin Hospital for making this magical day possible!

Nascar in China

13 Sep

Not so fast Nascar fans(pun intended).  While Formula 1 has a large audience here, the more American styles of car racing have a long way to go.  A recent event hosted by P1.cn (the chinese equivalent to Facebook except you have to be invited) proved that unlike in America, a racing event in China (with over a billion more people than the US mind you) cannot pull in 100,000+ screaming (okay…often drunk) fans and cause traffic jams for miles.  The fact the we were allowed to chill inside the flag box says a lot, but the picture of the empty stands below says it best.

We really did have such a great time though – 100,000 other fans or not.  Our friends Moya and David (who invited us) were a blast as always.  Plus, there was a VIP room with food, free drinks, and most importantly air conditioning to get a break from the Beijing heat.  And, as you will see below – we had fun playing in P1’s photo booths!
