BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Auburn University players, marching band, and cheerleaders stopped by Children’s of Alabama to bring a little joy to the lives of the patients and their families Tuesday.
They were in town for the Birmingham Bowl, which the Tigers won 31-10.
This video of the Auburn University Marching Band playing for the patients was shared by WHNT News 19 Chief Meteorologist Jason Simpson – someone who is no stranger to Children’s of Alabama. Jason’s youngest son, Brody, has had a total of six surgeries, three of them major, since his birth. Speaking of Brody, here’s a happy update on his condition, in case you hadn’t heard.
Jason told his Facebook fans, “I know a lot of AU fans are disappointed that you didn’t get a bigger bowl, but the impact the band, cheerleaders and players have in an environment like this…at HOME…where the kids know who you are…that’s big, guys. War Eagle.”
